Mission: Tempered Steel is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting national awareness, education and support for our severely injured military members. Tempered Steel focuses on providing support to those suffering the most debilitating traumas from Iraq and Afghanistan by encouraging peer to peer support, educating the public and providing direction and assistance to additional programs and services that will meet their needs. Tempered Steel will also encourage public introspection as to the courage, heroism and commitment demonstrated by our military men and women through their stories behind the wounds of war.
Results: With over 35 speakers nationwide our Veteran Speakers have spoken at over 60 events, schools, military organizations, military events, community events and corporations about their injuries and recovery. Closing the gap between the disabled and disfigured military world and the civilian population.

Luana and Scott have channeled their experiences and frequent frustrations into a foundation that works on many levels. They have brought together a unique group of wounded vets who inform our American communities about their war experiences and, more importantly, about how we can all support them as they live with their wounds. It's inspiring for us to learn from these heroes. And it's healing for these vets to tell their stories. I love these guys! Bravo to Tempered Steel!
