Founded by Melissa Jarboe in honor of her husband SSG Jamie Jarboe (from Indiana) who passed away on March 21, 2012 after being wounded April 2011, when SSG Jarboe was shot by a sniper’s bullet in the Zhari District of Afghanistan. The 7.62 bullet from an AK 47 Rifle penetrated SSG Jarboes Spine leaving him a quadriplegic and paralyzed from his chest down. SSG Jarboe never gave up the fight on the battlefield nor did his wife Melissa. Once they returned to American Soil, they spent 11 months inside 7 different hospitals. SSG Jarboe in his last days made his wife, Melissa promise to take care of my soldiers don’t ever let them forget they have our support.
