United States Army Sgt. 1st Class Cory Remsburg was injured October 1, 2009, when his platoon hit a roadside bomb in Afghanistan during his 10th deployment to the Middle East. Remsburg suffered a penetrating head wound with shrapnel lodged in his brain, sending him into a coma for over three years. After undergoing dozens of surgeries and years of rehabilitation, Remsburg has made a miraculous recovery; however, he is still blind in his right eye and partially paralyzed on his left side.
After hearing of his incredible story, Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors teamed up with The Army Ranger Lead the Way Fund to purchase and remodel a home designed specifically with his injuries in mind. In March of 2014, thanks to the hard work of many incredible supporters and sponsors, we were able give Cory the keys to his new 100-percent accessible, mortgage-free home. The home, which includes a wheel in pool for Cory’s rehab, a therapeutic spa as well as a guest home for his caregiver, helps to remove an element of stress so that Cory can focus on his recovery.
Since receiving his home Remsburg has made amazing strides in his quest for independence. Recently he competed at both the Valor Games and the DoD Warrior Games and earned 6 medals. Even after his injury Cory Remsburg continues to ‘lead the way
