The reason for this article — Nimo needs a new prosthetic. His current prosthetic leg is over three years old. When he received his prosthetic leg he weighed 250lb, his current weight is 210lb (the prosthetic is built based on the person’s weight +/- 20lb, anything above or below 20lb requires a new leg). The current prosthetic doesn’t fit him properly any longer and is causing blistering, scaring, back and joint pain.
Our goal is to raise $40,000 for a new prosthetic leg for Nimo. Chapter 78 will match all donations.
All gifts are tax deductible. Amounts of $5,000, $1,000 and $500 are preferred — donations of any amount are appreciated.
At this time donations can be made by check only. We are considering online options, so please check back for updates if that is the method you prefer.
Please make checks payable to:
Special Forces Association Chapter 78.
Please note on check:

As you may or may not know, Nimo, and those like him, receive NO benefits from the US government. Chapter 78 is asking you step up and help. Nimo was there when we needed him, now it’s our turn.
Let’s show Nimo how special US Special Forces are!
