The Wounded Warrior Project Foundation 11425. I was blessed and honored this past September to attend the funerals of 6 out of the 13 service members KIA in Kabul Afghanistan. I went to Laredo Texas for LCpl David L. Espinoza to Lawrence Massachusetts for Sgt Johanny RosarioPichardo to St Louis Missouri for LCpl Jared M. Smitz to Omaha Nebraska for Cpl Daegan W. Page to Sacramento California for Sgt Nicole L. Gee, and finally to Arlington National Cemetery to lay SSgt Darin T. Hoover to rest. My time during this week enabled me to pay my final respects and be there for the fallens families. I started a campaign for the Wounded Warrior Project Foundation and hosted a fundraiser in memory of those killed and also for the service members who survived and were in critical condition. My goal is to raise 10,000 and I have completed 1,000$ of that and have also hosted a 5K through the WWP Foundation annual virtual 5K marathon up to the crosses in Camp Horno to lay photos and flags for the fallen.
I give because I have been blessed and extremely fortunate in my life. I believe in pushing out good deeds in this world for those less fortunate and this in a way creates a balance for humanity where we are all blessed through acts of service or even miracles.
The contributions towards my cause help to ensure that those wounded warriors and their families are helped through the darkest time and a light is shown onto them. Through treatments and resources funded by donations to the Wounded Warrior Project Foundation this ensures future warriors are helped.
