Moving Forward

The Wounded Warriors were greeted at the airport in Orlando by a huge supportive crowd of well wishers!

Matt is now SSG Matt Lammers (Retired)! As of the end of October Matt has returned to civilian life. He returned to Olathe to live until he is able to resume rehabilitation in Oklahoma. Matt recently was awarded a trip to Orlando from the Coalition to Salute America's Heroes which included his parents and his two daughters . We all attended the Road to Recovery Conference and met up with many old friends and made some new ones. Matt has accepted a position with the Coalition and American Airlines which will allow him to continue his own quest to walk again and give him a chance to begin to give back to all of those who have supported him and his fellow wounded warriors. Matt and his daughters were taped for a Sesame Street segment focusing on the families of wounded soldiers which should be aired this spring.
