Throughout the month of October, the San Antonio NARI Chapter will be remodeling the bathroom of Tech Sgt. Dan Fye, who lost his left leg and suffered serve damage to his right leg while serving in Afghanistan. NARI is remodeling the entire bathroom, including the counters, cabinets, floors, lights and of course, the shower. The new bathroom will make it easier and less stressful for Fye to bathe.
This project is being done through Wish for Our Heroes.
About Wish for Our Heroes
WISH for OUR HEROES is a national 501(c)(3), dedicated to assisting the men and women of the United States active-duty military. WISH for OUR HEROES launched in November of 2009, in honor of 1SG Thomas G. Wells, who was a career Marine. The founders of WISH for OUR HEROES served on active-duty and while deployed, they recognized that a serious need existed within our military ranks. There were so many great charities in existence, but the majority of them focused on specific groups or categories: WIA, KIA, bankruptcy, divorce, etc. There were no charities that focused on not only helping military members falling into these extreme categories, but also helping the average, hard-working military member going through a difficult time. WISH for OUR HEROES saw the toll that war takes on families back home, and we needed something that could help families with small issues. Small issues can spiral into larger issues, and larger issues can spiral into things like divorce, suicide, and all of those problems our military members face as a result of daily military life.
