Airlift Research Foundation funds research that promises to save limbs of our military men and women, my peers who life and limb for all of us. To date, during my board service, researchers funded by Airlift grants are promising science and advancements which may have enhanced my personal recovery in 2004, when I lost my leg in Iraq. They are working with load bearing scaffolds, UVC light infection control, and other things that might have preserved at least 8 inches of my residual limb on the battlefield in 2004. I serve Airlift because these potential advancements can help my comrades who are still in the fight.

I have been involved with this foundation since it's inception because i passionately believe in and identify with the focused mission. To apply the most advanced technology and innovative research to our warriors who have had their lives compromised in the pursuit of securing our freedom is compelling. It is truly a small sacrifice to support the effort of Airlift Foundation in support of our wounded heros.
Thank you for your interest in learning more about the Airlift Research Foundation. Your support will leverage research that improves the care of military and civilian survivors of traumatic extremity injuries. You can make a difference! Please join us in supporting this urgent cause.
There is not a cause more noble than defending your country and be willing to die for it. For those who have served, made the ultimate sacrifice, and have been wounded we owe our gratitude. Airlift Research Foundation is one small way to show our thanks by supporting the research that could possibly make these wounded warriors whole again. I'm excited for what the future holds for Airlift!
