On October 9th, 2020, Freedom Alliance and U.S. Bank presented a vehicle to United States Army SPC Leilani White. SPC White received the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica in Marrow, Georgia along with her family.
SPC White enlisted in the Army in June 2001. Shortly after, she deployed to Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom. While on leave, she was in a major car accident resulting in a severe traumatic brain injury and other serious injuries. Currently, SPC White suffers from back issues and post-traumatic stress incurred during her service in Afghanistan. She medically retired in 2003.
SPC White and her husband, Brandon, together with their four young children, live in the Jonesboro area of Georgia. This vehicle will remove a financial burden from the White family and give them reliable transportation to places of employment and medical appointments.
“We are so grateful to be able to support SPC White and recognize her service,” said Freedom Alliance President, Tom Kilgannon, “This partnership with U.S. Bank has allowed us to expand who we are able to reach and help beyond our own resources. They share our same mission—honoring service members for their dedication and personal sacrifice.”
