DUNNELLON, Fla. – With a continued goal to improve her health and well-being, U.S. Army specialist Danielle Osborne is another step closer thanks to Hope For The Warriors® and its Warrior’s Wish® program.

Courtesy of the national nonprofit, Osborne recently received workout equipment valued at $4,500 allowing her the privacy and peace of mind to exercise at home.

Hope For The Warriors is dedicated to restoring a sense of self, family and hope to service members, their families, and families of the fallen. One if its first established programs, Warrior’s Wish

fulfills a desire for a better quality-of-life or supports a quest for gratifying endeavors for those who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty.

While serving as a human intelligence analyst in Baghdad, traveling throughout the region tracking terrorist activity between 2005-2006, Osborne was injured in a combat zone.

“Thanks to Hope For The Warriors and its Warrior’s Wish program, I am able to work out comfortably in my own home and be able to focus on my health and well-being,” said Osborne. “I haven’t been able to do this for a long time due to ongoing issues of being around excessive noise and too many people. Thanks to receiving this wish, I can get some health and happiness back in my life.”

After five years serving in the Army, Osborne medically retired in 2009 and completed her bachelor’s in business agriculture and currently works for the USDA Rural Development program.

“U.S. Army specialist Osborne is the epitome of a solider,” said Robin Kelleher, president and CEO of Hope For The Warriors. “Despite having to medically retire from the military due to injuries, she continues to reach high and dig deep to achieve personal and professional goals. We’re honored to help her health and wellness journey with this home gym.”

In 2020, six wishes will be granted through Hope For The Warriors. Since the program’s inception, Warrior’s Wish has granted over 200 wishes.
