Good afternoon and Happy New Year!
I would like to share with you the Lima Foxtrot’s 2012 schedule of events. The Lima Foxtrot program is Lakeshore Foundation’s initiative for severely injured military. Our programs serve those servicemen and women with injuries such as spinal cord injury (permanent paralysis), TBI, amputation, blind/visually impaired, burns, and permanent disfigurement. Their injuries do not have to be combat-related, but it is preferred that they served post 9/11. Both active duty personnel and veterans are eligible for Lima Foxtrot programs. You are receiving this information because you either serve our injured servicemen and women directly or you have contacts that do. You all are our primary recruiting source and we appreciate the support you have shown and continue to show for the programs we provide.
The 2012 Lima Foxtrot events are:
