A Trip Home

Hope For The Warriors® is proud to grant Lance Cpl. Hector Sanchez, USMC (Ret.), along with his family of four, a trip to his native Puerto Rico. Sanchez served eight years in the Marine Corps, including a total of 19 months deployed to Iraq. During his combat, he endured the impact of five IEDs and witnessed severe combat conditions during his two deployments. After returning, Sanchez displayed serious indications of PTSD and his wife, Aida, applied to the A Warrior's Wish® Program. The Sanchez family hopes that this trip will be an integral part of his therapeutic recovery by connecting him with his culture and history.

Going Fishing!

Hope For The Warriors® is proud to grant A Warrior's Wish® to Sgt. Joseph Pledger, USMC (Ret.) that will support his new offshore charter fishing business. Hope For The Warriors® will provide Pledger with updated equipment to further develop his business and provide support within the fishing community. Pledger, a Purple Heart recipient, served more than six years in the Marine Corps as an Infantry Mortarman, including a seven-month deployment to Iraq and six-month deployment to Afghanistan. Because of his combat, he is now living with PTSD, TBI, and paresthesia of the lower extremities. Pledger turned to Hope For The Warriors® to aid him in further advancing his fishing business while also offering support to the service member community through networking and outreach opportunities.

Make a House a Home

Iraq War veteran and 9/11 First Responder, Chief Petty Officer Colin Redy, USCG (Ret.) and his family will soon receive a mortgage-free home from BCB Community Bank in New Jersey through our A Warrior's Wish® Program.  However, as Hope For The Warriors® inspected this new home and reviewed the needs of the family, it was clear that it required renovations to accommodate the family of six. To complete this project, Hope For The Warriors® has enlisted help from Highland Associates, Plaza Construction and Heart 9/11.

To complete this Wish, funds are needed to purchase renovation supplies. Companies, groups, and individuals are encouraged to step forward to make this new home a reality for this wounded hero and his family.
