(Ret) SSG Allen Hill and his wife Gina were also in attendance. SSG Hill was critically injured in Iraq in November 2007. While his physical injuries have healed, he still deals with the invisible injuries of PTSD and TBI. Since his injury, Allen has been in and out of numerous hospitals and residential PTSD treatment programs, most recently The Pathway Home in Yountville, California, where he has finally learned how to better manage his PTSD.
Gina Hill is a full time caregiver for her husband, and has become an advocate for other families and veteran’s who are struggling with the invisible wounds of war.
She is the founder of Silent Siren, an individually funded program of the Karla Smith Foundation 501©3, and
writes the award winning blog “The Invisible Wounded”. Late last summer, Allen and his family were reunited after 11 months of separation due to his time spent at The Pathway Home when his family received a new home from Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.
