Charitable organization Freedom Alliance is set to donate an Action TrackChair—a customized, all-terrain wheelchair—to Petty Officer 3rd Class Chris Bradley.
The donation ceremony will take place October 28 at the Veterans of Foreign Wars facility in Amarillo, Tex.
According to a media release from Freedom Alliance, Bradley served in the Navy for 6 years and was deployed to Kuwait, Iraq, then back to stations in the United States before medically retiring in Amarillo in 2009. He is currently receiving treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder, a traumatic brain injury, as well as physical combat-related injuries. Due to his periodic paralysis, he now uses a wheelchair most of the time.
The ActionTrack chair will hopefully enable Bradley to fish and hike with his family again, per the release.
“Chris Bradley is an American hero who served our country on multiple deployments sustaining injuries that would ail him for years to come,” says Freedom Alliance President Tom Kilgannon, in the release.
“For his service and great sacrifice, Freedom Alliance would like to offer him this chair as a small token of our appreciation. We hope it brings him comfort and the ability to enjoy nature and his favorite activities more easily,” he adds.
