Marcus and Amber Capone have a touching story that has inspired hundreds of people across the globe. This couple has maintained a relationship for over 20 years, which has been based on loyalty, perseverance, and mutual support. The two of them have been through thick and thin, and they have never given up on each other.
In 2013, after numerous combat deployments, Marcus, a retired Navy SEAL, returned home to the United States, only to be faced with depression, isolation, cognitive impairment, and traumatic brain injury (TBI). Marcus went to specialists, brain clinics, and tried every pharmaceutical option that was available, but he could not find any answers. His condition was so severe that he was slowly losing hope and sinking further into darkness.
Amber, Marcus’ wife, decided to look for alternative options outside the US after hearing of the positive experience that a fellow SEAL had experienced from undergoing a plant medicine experience. Marcus underwent this experience, and it transformed his life completely. This intervention was a turning point for Marcus, his family, and the many veterans that have followed in his footsteps.
Based on this experience, Marcus and Amber decided to found VETS (Veterans Exploring Treatment Solutions), a non-profit that aims to help other veterans access these alternative plant therapies. Through VETS, Marcus and Amber are on a mission to help their fellow servicemen and women find their way back to themselves.
