Our 2020 Honorees:
Gunnery Sergeant Tom McRea
Gunnery Sergeant Thomas deployed twice more, both times to Afghanistan: once in early 2010 and again in late 2011. On January 16, 2012, in the town of Sangin, his life took a turn. “We had a bomb disposal robot that got stuck in a compound,” he explains. “I went back to the truck in an area we had cleared to get some equipment, and as I was heading back I stepped on an IED that was 15-20 pounds. I lost both legs above the knees, lost my left arm above the elbow and had a bad head wound – something hit my eye socket and shot bone fragments into my brain.
Thanks to everyones support Larry Moore & I (Ted Levitt) trailered a Newly resorted 1966 Mustang to one of our 2020 honorees Gunnery Sergeant Tom McRea. This is Toms Dream car.
It was amazing to the look on his face and meet his family. And back in June we had two 1000 gallon propane tanks installed & hooked up to his generator so Tom has 1 days of power and can stay at home during outages.
Soon we will have an up date on what we are doing for our other 2020 Honoree Captain Ryan Kules and his family. As you know we had to postpone our event till June 27th 2021, but we don’t stop doing what we need to for our heroes.
Thank you, Ted Levitt
Capt. Ryan Kules
We will be adding more information soon!
