Kimberley Bentele is the wife of Marine Corp Veteran Ryan Bentele, as well as a Board Member for Veteran’s R&R. She lives in Woodstock, Illinois, with Ryan and their three children, Benjamin, Charlie, and Annabelle. Kimberley met Ryan after he returned from a deployment to Iraq in 2005, and they have been together ever since. She has helped Ryan deal with the physical and non-visible wounds of war, including PTSD and a TBI. After finding Operation Wild Horse in 2017, Kimberley found there to be a profound change in Ryan’s PTSD symptoms. They have subsequently both devoted a great deal of time to community outreach and volunteering to help other Veteran families in the area.
