This donation is one of several ways Freedom Alliance is helping service members remain positive and feel supported during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Williamsburg, Va. – (May 13, 2020) – Freedom Alliance, an organization supporting wounded troops and military families, presented Williamsburg resident SFC Logan Brokaw with a Customized Mobility Device that turns his everyday wheelchair into an all-terrain wheelchair. The event took place Wednesday, May 13 at the Brokaw residence.

Sergeant First Class Brokaw joined the Army in 2003 and served as an aircraft mechanic in Hawaii for six years before deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan. He then spent three years at Fort Campbell, KY and subsequently served four additional deployments. After his return, the family moved to Virginia to serve at Ft. Eustis in the Aviation Technology Office. In 2018, while on a training mission in Arizona, he sustained multiple injuries, resulting in paralysis.

“I’d like to thank Freedom Alliance and the kind donors for making this a possibility,” said SFC Brokaw. “It means a lot to have people who care and do so much to help servicemembers and this device will allow me to more easily enjoy my favorite outdoor activities with my wife and kids.”

“Logan Brokaw gave 17 years of his life to the service of our nation,” said Freedom Alliance President Tom Kilgannon, who presented the device to SFC Brokaw. “He served heroically and sacrificed for our safety. We hope this donation gives him greater flexibility and mobility and to spend more quality time with his kids.”
