Wounded Warrior Enjoys Renovated Home

Injured Marine Continues to Serve

Matt Bradford, a 23-year old Marine, was injured in Iraq and lost both of his legs and his vision. When he returned to the United States, he became familiar with a CFC supported charity that has been beneficial in helping him to get his life back in order. The charity has helped in many ways including providing financial assistance for his immediate needs, helping him to participate in hope and morale trips and supporting him to complete several road races on a hand cycle. The group also helped to take care of his mother who had moved to be by his side, during his multiple surgeries.

While on patrol in the Sunni Triangle, one of the most dangerous sectors along the Euphrates River in Iraq, Army Captain Ferris Butler’s HUMVEE triggered an IED. The explosion ripped through the vehicle and resulted in serious injuries to CPT Butler. He managed to issue orders to secure the area, because he instinctively knew that the ones responsible for the bomb might be waiting nearby for an opportunity to attack again.
