USO Caregiver seminar

Anthony T. Triola, Fort Hood Field Representative for U.S Rep. John Carter, R-Round Rock, left, and Stephanie Booth share some laughs during the “ice-breaker” opening session of the recent USO Caregiver Seminar.

Army spouse Gisele became so overwhelmed with the caregiving demands to her combat-wounded husband that she cocooned herself in the world inside her home. Her daily stresses, combined with her husband’s inability to cope with his invisible wounds elevated marital tensions and soon, the two quit talking.

Eventually, her husband sought treatment, but there was still a major hurdle: Gisele had forgotten how to live.
