This award was implemented as the result of an accident in 1984, while on active duty as an officer with the US Army, I became a quadriplegic, paralyzed from the chest down. After a medevac flight (during which I had to be resuscitated by the on board medic), I spent 6 weeks in "Shock Trauma" (where I had to be resuscitated for a second time). Then, I spent another 10 months in a veteran's hospital among many other young men struggling to put a sense of worth back into our lives. I had always admired our national symbol, the bald eagle, for its strength, courage, beauty, and its ability to soar on the slightest of winds. It was what those of us in the hospital were trying to do - muster up the strength and courage to live our lives with the least amount of help. Now I am in a position spiritually, physically, and financially to recognize others for their efforts. Thus, the "FLY WITH EAGLES" award was born.
