Dear Friends of Army Ranger Lead The Way Fund,
I wanted to take this brief opportunity to let you know that on May 31, 2018 Army Ranger Lead The Way Fund, along with our partner Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors, had the privilege of presenting MSG (Ret.) Chris Corbin with the keys to his custom built, completely accessible and mortgage-free home in Fayetteville, North Carolina. It was a very exciting day for Army Ranger Lead The Way Fund and, of course, for Chris and his new bride.
In 2014, Army Ranger Lead The Way Fund was introduced to Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors, who joined us on this incredible journey when we first collaborated to present SFC (Ret.) Cory Remsburg with his state-of-the-art home. It is our continued hope that, together, these “Homes that Heal“ provide our Rangers and their families with the comfort, sense of stability, and, most of all, independence they deserve for their sacrifices.
We are within three weeks of breaking ground on a home for SGT (Ret.) Tom Block (Wounded in Action, Afghanistan, October 2013) in New Hampshire and about a month away from breaking ground on a home for SGT (Ret.) Travis Dunn who was paralyzed on a mission in Afghanistan in December 2014. SGT (Ret.) Josh Hargis (Wounded in Action, Afghanistan, Oct. 2013) will be receiving a home in North Carolina in 2019.
As you can see, we are quite busy here at Army Ranger Lead The Way Fund and are only picking up steam ensuring that the needs of our Ranger families do not go unmet. We are incredibly grateful for all of the support and involvement you have shown us through the years and are able to make things happen for them because of your continued dedication.
I also hope you will Save the Date and join us at our Gala on Monday, September 24th at Pier Sixty in NYC where we will be honoring General Joseph Votel, Commander, CENTCOM and Mr. Steven Cohen, Founder, Cohen Veterans Network & Cohen Veterans Bioscience / Chairman & CEO, Point72 Asset Management, with our SGT James J. Regan Lifetime Achievement Award for their service to our Nation and to our military.
We could not do any of this without you and your unwaivering support. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.
Rangers Lead The Way!
