"The thing that got me was the amount of times I told the military to please, please help me come up with a way to help him with his addiction and wean him off of the pills. I thought he needed inpatient drug addiction therapy. He needed help and I didn't feel like anyone would listen to me.''

Karie's husband, Jimmy Cleveland Kinsey was seriously injured in April 2006 when he drove over a land mine in Ramadi, Iraq. As he recovered, Kinsey struggled with chronic pain, depression, drug addiction, and the anguish of losing buddies in battle.
