Sole mission... Roll Strong!
“No man left behind” is the famous ethos of American soldiers and Marines on the battlefield. Veterans stood in the gap for us, frequently sacrificing life and limb. We owe it to them to not forget and never leave them behind.
So what about when they leave the battlefield? What then? Too often they ARE left behind as the machinery of bureaucracy grinds on. The history of the VA is rife with such instances, as wounded warriors are stalled and neglected, sometimes even unto death. Many times, disabled veterans are assigned substandard mobility equipment that hinders rather than helps their ability to function and.... LIVE!
Wheelchairs for Warriors provide custom fit wheelchairs to fit the individual veterans' physical and lifestyle needs. Our on-staff mechanical engineer suffered with his veteran father, who was unable to acquire the proper fitting wheelchair and he shared in the agony his father endured having his legs amputated, and ultimately deciding the struggle was not worth it. After only a few months in his proper wheelchair, he passed away. This veteran's quality of life was lacking... quality. Wheelchairs for Warriors is on a mission to make sure this does not have to happen.
Note: The regional VA, who took 3 years to provide the wheelchair, refused to take it back to recycle, even though it was only used four times, so the effort and the financial resources spent seemed like a complete waste. However, after his father's passing, he took it upon himself to find a veteran who could benefit from such a gift.
The VA is underfunded, undermanned, and through no fault of its own, creates a gap.
Wheelchairs for Warriors provides custom designed, individually fit, complex rehab, mobility solutions to ensure wounded veterans and first responders can rejoin their lives at the highest level possible with INDEPENDENT mobility and function and to be able to...ROLL STRONG.
Our mission is to stand in the gap between and underfunded and undermanned VA and help our warriors Roll Strong!
