Sandra and Kerry met in the Army—but different ones. Sandra was a medic in the German Army when she met Kerry, an infantryman in the US Army, during a training exercise between the two nations. They marred in 1998 and had a son, but Kerry’s military career would have him deploy multiple times over the next eight years. After Kerry returned from Iraq in 2006, it became clear that though his body was intact, Kerry was suffering from invisible wounds: PTSD and traumatic brain injury. Sandra has sacrificed her job and her time to ensure her husband gets the treatment he needs. When the typical medical regimen didn’t work, she became a full-time, VA certified caregiver to support Kerry. Their daily lives revolve around managing memory problems, hearing loss, depression, anxiety, flashbacks, tremors, migraines, and seizures. Sandra now volunteers with Family of a Vet to educate other caregivers about the benefits available to them and advocates for wounded warriors and their caregivers.
