The young mother from Colbert, Oklahoma is a sergeant in the Oklahoma National Guard and has spent the last six months in Kabul, Afghanistan. Copeland’s husband, Chris, and their 6-year-old son, Kyle, have stayed behind. The entire family appeared on the show, which was taped last week in New York City.
