FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DALLAS, Texas – (April 19, 2016) – Medically retired United States Army staff sergeant and Dallas resident, Kenny Hill, was recently a part of a Heroes Vacation. Hill suffers from paralysis and post-traumatic stress after he was hit by an improvised explosive device in 2003, while serving in Iraq. Freedom Alliance, a nonprofit organization that supports injured service members and their families, hosted this all-expense-paid trip for Hill and 15 other veterans from across the country. The fourth annual adventure took place April 11-16 at the Los Sueños Resort and Marina in Costa Rica and was designed to assist in the veterans’ recovery from combat-related injuries.
“The yearly vacation provided our military heroes with a peaceful and much needed reprieve which allowed for comradery and healing to occur,” said Tom Kilgannon, president of Freedom Alliance. “Their bravery and sacrifice for our nation will never be forgotten and this is the least we can do to show our gratitude.”
Los Sueños encompasses a private 600-acre rainforest reserve, an 18-hole championship golf course, full-service marina, spa and more. The trip will feature a crocodile safari and a zip line canopy tour, as well as a golf clinic and deep sea fishing.
The Heroes Vacation is made possible from generous sponsors and donors, including Freedom Alliance Board Member Gerald Lindholm and his wife Virginia, Los Sueños Resort and Marina, the many condo and yacht owners that make these activities possible, Gato Gordo Golf Cart Rentals, Wiley X, Inc., PGA Director of Golf at La Iguana Golf Course Jose Quesada, Jose’s Crocodile River Tour, the Vista Los Sueños Zip Line Canopy Tour and Tunaskin Aquatic Apparel.
