Warrior Story

Private First Class Phil Bauer’s journey embodies dedication and a steadfast commitment to service. Enlisting in January 2002 at age 23, PFC Bauer embarked on his military career as an Iron Hawk with the 19D Calvary Scouts. On October 31, 2003, he received orders that he was being sent on R & R; however, two days later, on November 2, the military helicopter that was transporting him and around 30 other people was stuck with a missile, plummeting 200 feet to the ground. Only 15 people survived, making this attack the largest loss of troops at the time.

Because of the attack, PFC Bauer sustained multiple injuries, including the loss of four toes, a below-the-knee amputation, burns, scarring, nerve damage, a TBI, and PTSD. In total, he underwent 15 operations and has had 2 revision operations since. After intense rehabilitation, PFC Bauer made the difficult decision to retire from active duty so that he could return to his family and children and begin his new civilian life.

PFC Bauer’s caring and humorous spirit has led him to a passion for advocating for Veterans’ rights and access to service dogs. He became deeply involved with Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities (ECAD) after receiving his first service dog, Reese, to help aid him in his physical and mental recovery.

He currently resides in a second-floor apartment and is excited to have one-level living, widened doorways, and a handicap-accessible shower. PFC Bauer also looks forward to having plenty of space for his family, pets, and hobbies.

Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors is honored to collaborate with our national partners to design and build a 100% accessible, mortgage-free home to ease his daily life, safely and comfortably.
