U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Jarrad D. (Ret.)

Luke’s Wings hosts major fundraisers throughout the year to raise money and awareness and to show appreciation to our supporters, sponsors, and wounded warriors.

Jarrad started his military career in the U.S. Navy at 17 years of age. After completing his first enlistment, he transferred to the U.S. Army Reserves. On deployment in June of 2011 in Iraq, Jarrad received injuries sustained from multiple rocket attacks. He was later transferred to Baghdad and then to Walter Reed.

We’ve had the pleasure of assisting Jarrad and his family for over four years during his recovery at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Most recently, we provided flights for his wife and two youngest sons so they could be in attendance at his retirement ceremony. The family has been separated by distance for most of Jarrad’s time at Walter Reed due to school and work obligations. Thankfully, he knew he could turn to us for help keeping the family united.
