In this image from a video interview, John Manley, 58, a civilian U.S. Army public affairs officer at U.S. Africa Command in Stuttgart, Germany, and wife Heidi Mathis, 60, answer questions during an interview. Manley also spent 21 years in the Marines.

But Manley was skeptical of using a drug not approved by the Food and Drug Administration for treating the virus and decided it was a gamble not worth taking. (AP Photo)
