VETERANS WHO INSPIRE US…
Carrington is continually inspired by the stories of our deserving Veterans and their families and strives to give back to those who have fought protecting our freedom. Meet some of the personal heroes.
U.S. Army Master Sergeant Robert “Bobby” Farmer
Master Sgt. Farmer served in Iraq and Afghanistan in several different duty stations before being to the 3rd Special Forces Group in July 2002 as a Special Forces Engineer on Operational Detachment Alpha 391. For his heroism and his injuries, he was awarded a Bronze Star for Valor, the Army Commendation Medal for Valor and the Purple Heart. Since retiring from the U.S. Army, Master Sgt. Farmer has worked with the Warrior PATH program, which provides a seven-day war detox for Veterans at the Boulder Crest Retreat in Bluemont, Va. He specifically focuses on Veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.
U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Brian Kolfage
Senior Airman Kolfage’s indomitable spirit helped him survive being the most severely wounded Airman to survive any war; and he continued his service to the U.S. Air Force after leaving the hospital. He further demonstrated his dedication to the community by serving on Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ Veterans Advisory Committee, providing crucial insight used to assist Veterans on a national level. Senior Airman Kolfage and his wife, Ashley, continue to travel to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to visit with newly wounded Veterans, encouraging them and giving them hope for their future.
THIS YEAR’S CCF GALA
Proceeds from this yearly fundraiser go directly toward helping our wounded Veterans returning home from service. With the money raised, CCF can continue to build homes for catastrophically wounded Veterans through CCF’s Carrington House program, giving them a home they deserve and can call their own. To date, Carrington House has built 14 custom, adaptive homes in communities across the United States, each designed to meet the special needs of wounded Veterans and their families – with four additional homes in different phases of planning and construction. In addition, proceeds also support various Veteran Support Programs including the Veterans Airlift Command, which provides transportation to and from medical treatments for our wounded Heroes and their families through a national network of volunteer aircraft owners and pilots.
