When Specialist Karina Davis returned from a two-year deployment, she knew that adjustments would be part of the deal. The freckle-faced Davis is slowly easing back into being home with her children Kasey, 13, and Armando, 14, but admits it hasn’t been a piece of cake. “I didn’t want to be around people and was having bouts of depression,” she says. “And it was hard for me to fall asleep because I hear everything.” After going to a counselor, she was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder. She says she’s working through it with the support of her family and friends. On base at Fort Hood, Davis is taking classes to reorient and readjust herself to everyday life. She’s also getting used to being a bride—she married fellow soldier Army Specialist Joe Davis, Jr., last January in a courthouse wedding.
