Derek and Andria McGinnis started off as a dual military family. They both served in the military until after they married and Andrea became pregnant with their first child. Shortly after finding out they were going to have a baby, Derek deployed to Iraq. He was a Corpsman serving in Fallujah when the ambulance he was driving was hit by a vehicle born IED. Derek and Andrea's lives were drastically changed in that moment. They have traveled a very long and challenging path as a married couple and as new parents, but their determination seems tireless. Derek has since worked with the National Pain Foundation and he has written a book about his experience with pain -- a book he hopes will help returning Veterans who suffer with chronic pain. His book is called Exit Wounds and can be found at painfoundation.org click on the link to the left for military veterans with pain.
