DULLES, Va.– Nov. 5, 2014– In recognition of Veterans Day, Freedom Alliance will present Corporal Jeramie Green with a custom-made, all-terrain wheelchair; also known as an Action Trackchair. This Trackchair will be awarded to Green in honor of his bravery and sacrifices while deployed. The donation will take place at Freedom Alliance headquarters at 22570 Markey Court Suite 240, Dulles, Virginia 20166.
At age 25, Green joined the U.S. Army where he specialized in welding. During his last mission in Afghanistan in 2012, he was injured during a motor vehicle accident and suffered injuries to his legs which led to an amputation. The horrific accident happened just two days before Green’s nine-month mission was coming to an end.
“Corporal Jeramie Green showed true courage when he risked his life for our nation. Jeramie’s injuries are the result of a deliberate decision to risk his own safety for that of his fellow soldier. He is selfless and courageous,” said Freedom Alliance President, Tom Kilgannon. “This chair will help Jeramie participate in the activities he enjoys and continue his rehabilitation,” said Kilgannon. “It is our honor to provide it to him. It is the least we can do for an American hero.”
Green is rehabilitating at the Military Advanced Training Center (MATC) at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. He is motivated by the impending birth of his daughter in March. The first anniversary of his “Alive Day” is approaching and is a reminder of how grateful he is for life and his family and the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors again. Some of his favorite actives include mud running and fishing.
The ceremony will take place:
