Kelly Kowall’s son, SPC Corey Kowall, died while on a combat mission in Afghanistan in 2009. In the ensuing months, Kelly was touched by the battle that many veterans continued to fight after they returned from the war zone. Theirs was an emotional battle against grief, post traumatic stress and depression.
Through the purchase of a boat, Kelly began taking veterans on boating excursions. She discovered that the outings were therapeutic for these scarred individuals. Kelly had no idea then that she would be led to found My Warrior’s Place, a non-profit haven for veterans and their families who need love, understanding and therapy. You’ll be inspired as you hear Kelly share her story.
