JOIN US IN GIVING BACK
TO A COMBAT HERO.
US ARMY CW3
In December of 2004, US Army Chief Warrant Officer Three Scott Carnes' Apache helicopter was hit with an explosive while protecting members of a fellow unit in Mosul, Iraq. The blast caused severe damage to the helicopter—which Scott was miraculously able to ground in an emergency landing—as well as his spine.
After pushing on and doing his best to cope with the pain, the injury eventually led to Scott losing control of different parts of his body—including a leg during one of his final flights. "I really put my unit and duty ahead of my health and kept on pushing," he said. Eventually, Scott was retired from the military and able to receive the medical treatment he needed. The injury to his spine permanently limited his mobility however, meaning he must navigate the daily challenges of transferring from a wheelchair or walker to a seat.
HELP PROVIDE A FAMILY
THE GIFT OF PEACE OF MIND.
Project 2 Heal is working toward a $30,000 Giving Tuesday goal to sponsor the training of a service dog for CW3 Scott Carnes in 2024. Your contribution will help cover the costs of training a puppy donated by Project 2 Heal to help Scott transfer in and out of his wheelchair, retrieve items dropped on the ground, and provide his family with a renewed sense of peace.
HELP US SUPPORT
SERVICE DOG JOURNEY
With your support, we can make a true impact in the lives of CW3 Scott Carnes and his family. It will take about 4 months to train a dog donated by Project 2 Heal to serve Scott's needs. Scott’s dedication to serving our country has been unwavering, and now it’s our turn to serve him. Your contribution will not only help provide Scott with a loyal companion, but also offer him the life-changing gifts of renewed independence and peace of mind for his family. Together, we can honor the sacrifice of a combat hero who truly deserves our utmost gratitude and support.
