Military Branch: United States Army
Alive Date: December 2, 2014
Location: Florida
Build Completion: Current Build

Army Ranger Staff Sergeant Travis Dunn was presented with the Bronze Star Medal for Valor and the Purple Heart after being wounded in combat on December 2, 2014 in Afghanistan. On that day, SSG Dunn and a group of Rangers with Bravo Company, 1st Battalion, 75th Ranger Regiment, and Afghan special operations soldiers were on a joint operation in Nangarhar Province when they came under attack. The group sustained six hours of direct fire engagement. Despite the assault, the unit cleared multiple insurgent-held compounds and killed more than 25 enemy fighters in addition to rescuing a wounded Ranger.

SSG Dunn showed great bravery in the exchange, closing with an armed enemy in a close ambush, as well as on three barricaded shooters. During the assault, SSG Dunn was shot in the upper torso and fell from an embankment, resulting in paraplegia. Despite being paralyzed from the waist down, he remains positive.

SSG Dunn and his wife look forward to starting a family together in Florida, and Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors is proud to team up with the Army Ranger Lead the Way Fund and the United Brotherhood of Carpenters to provide the Dunns with a 100-percent handicap accessible home, built specifically for SSG Dunn’s needs.

Cesar Garcia 

Cesar Garcia 

Name/Rank: Corporal Cesar Garcia
Military Branch: United States Army
Alive Date: June 16, 2006
Location: Arizona
Build Completion: September 20, 2019

Cpl. Cesar Garcia enlisted in the United States Army in April 2004 to serve his country and help others. He was deployed to Southwest Baghdad in September 2004 where his life would change forever. While on a mission to recover two prisoners of war on June 16, 2006, Cpl. Garcia suffered critical injuries in an explosion. His unit came across the bodies of the POWs when they realized they had been rigged with explosives. During the unit’s exit, a daisy chain exploded, and Cpl. Garcia sustained life-threatening injuries, including the loss of his left leg at the hip, pelvic and spinal fractures, and a traumatic brain injury. While attempting to get out, he was also shot multiple times in an ambush.

As a result of his injuries, Cpl. Garcia went into cardiac arrest. When CPR failed, his chest was opened and manually massaged and shocked to revive him. Once stabilized in Baghdad, he was transported to Germany and then to Brook Army Medical Center in San Antonio, TX. Cpl. Garcia required 42 surgeries and 18 months of neurocognitive rehabilitation to recover.

Despite having his life altered forever in combat, Cpl. Garcia has not allowed his injuries to sidetrack his goals. He currently works full-time as a Field Engineer, has earned his business degree and M.S. degree from Ira A. Fulton School of Engineering in Construction Management with Six Sigma Accreditation and LEAN Certification. He is thoroughly enjoying home life and coaching his son’s Peewee football team. That life has been enhanced by his new home in Arizona, courtesy of Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors, that is 100-percent handicap accessible, specifically for his individual needs.

Paul Skarinka

Paul Skarinka

Name/Rank: Corporal Paul Skarinka
Military Branch: United States Army
Alive Date: September 13, 2004
Location: Massachusetts
Build Completion: April 2, 2019

Cpl. Paul Skarinka was eight months into his first tour of duty with the U.S. Army when his unit came under enemy fire while on a mission in Sadr City just outside of Baghdad on September 13, 2004. He suffered a severed artery and serious damage to his left arm and leg in a rocket-propelled grenade explosion.

He was transported from Iraq to Germany and then to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington where he would remain for almost two years and undergo 25+ surgeries and over 10 blood transfusions. The rehabilitation process has been long, and included amputation of his left leg below the knee and partial amputation of his left arm, as well as TBI and PTSD.

Now living with his wife and two children in the Bridgewater, Mass. area, Cpl. Skarinka continues to serve in his community as an EMT/Paramedic with the Plympton Fire Department and Brewster Ambulance Service. Still, his injuries remain a daily battle. Though he and his wife own their home, it is not handicap accessible or conducive to his needs as a recent amputee. There are many stairs and the home is not suitable for wheelchair use.

Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors is proud to partner with the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Commodore Builders to provide the Skarinka family with a mortgage-free, 100-percent handicap accessible home in Hanson, MA.

Chris Corbin

Chris Corbin

Name/Rank: Sergeant First Class Chris Corbin
Military Branch: United States Army Special Forces
Alive Date: February 17, 2011
Location: North Carolina
Build Completion: May 2018

Sergeant First Class Chris Corbin entered military service in July 1995. Prior to becoming a Green Beret with the 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne), he served in various Army units such as the 3rd Brigade, 82nd Airborne Division (1995-1999), and the 1st Battalion, and 75th Ranger Regiment (1999-2002). On February 17th, 2011, Corbin was on his third tour to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF). That day, he was on patrol with his Operational Detachment Alpha (ODA) through a village in the Helmand Province, when he stepped on an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) and suffered injuries to both legs resulting in a bilateral, below-the-knee (Bilat BK) amputation.

After stabilization, Corbin was immediately sent to Walter Reed Army Medical Center where he underwent several surgeries, after which, he embarked upon what was thought to be a long road to rehabilitation. On July 15th, 2011, less than five months after his injury, he was medically cleared to Return to Duty (RTD) with the 7th Special Forces Group (A).

On March 24th, 2012, 13 months after his injury, Chris, with his Green Beret father, Master Sergeant Nelson Corbin, ran his first 5K race to benefit the Fisher House on Eglin Air Force Base. His determination and will coupled with the support and motivation provided by his father and teammates enabled Chris to finish his first race in 27 minutes and 34 seconds.

MSG Corbin continues to motivate others by leading by example, and always pushing further ahead. JAH4WW is pleased to partner with the Army Ranger Lead the Way Fund to begin work on a mortgage-free, 100-percent handicap-accessible home in North Carolina for MSG Corbin, customized completely to better suit his needs.

Kyle Moser

Name/Rank: Corporal Kyle Moser
Military Branch: United States Marines
Alive Date: November 1, 2011
Location: Illinois
Build Completion: May 2019

In 2010, Cpl Moser joined the United States Marines and served in the Echo Company. During that time, he quickly gained a reputation as a hard-working, intelligent, and ambitious leader who was always willing to help those around him.

In November of 2011, while on foot patrol in Afghanistan, Cpl Moser sustained critical injuries after stepping on an improvised explosive device (IED) – including the loss of both legs and injuries to his right hand.

Despite his life-altering injuries, Cpl Moser has remained hopeful and positive. However, living in a home that is not handicap accessible has made even the simplest everyday tasks extremely challenging.

This year, Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors (JAH4WW) will provide the Mosers with a mortgage-free handicap accessible home to better suit their needs.
