iBOT Personal Mobility Device Recipient
As we celebrated our Nation's Veterans during the month of November, American Mobility Project reached out to many potential donors for help with an extraordinary special project to fund an iBOT for a Veteran. Our donors earnestly accepted the challenge. Because of their generosity, Casey Jones was the recipient of life-changing mobility equipment.
Casey joined the U.S. Army in 2008 and became a Senior Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) team member. On May 16, 2013, while deployed in Senjaray, Afghanistan, Casey was tasked with clearing a compound that would serve as a command post location. As he assisted his team leader, Casey stepped on a pressure-plate improvised explosive device (IED), which detonated beneath him. The explosion resulted in the loss of both legs.
American Mobility Project honors our veterans, gives thanks for their service, and recognizes their sacrifice and that of their families. A very special Thank You to our donors who have made a new iBOT Personal Mobility Device a reality for Casey and his wife, Shannon.
Casey and Shannon will travel to New Hampshire in early 2021 for training in the new mobility device. They will bring Casey's custom iBOT home with them to their beautiful home in East Tennessee.
