Honoring Our Heroes


Dynasplint Sales Consultant, Lindsay Parker and her husband, Chris are running The Marine Corp marathon in honor of Chris’s nephew, LT (SEAL) Brendan Looney, the husband of Dynasplint Western Division administrator, Amy Looney.  They are running with Team Travis.  For any of you that had not heard, Brendan was a Navy SEAL killed in action last September while deployed in Afghanistan.  He was 29 years old.  Brendan’s roommate & close friend at the US Naval Academy was Travis Manion.  Travis was killed by a sniper, while deployed to Iraq, in April 2007.  Here is an excellent article about Brendan and Travis as well as a CBS news clip.

Travis’s family started the Travis Manion Foundation in his honor.  You can read more about it at Travismanion.com.  It is an excellent foundation that raises money to assist families of the fallen as well as wounded soldiers. 
 
Lindsay and Chris will each raise at least $600 for The Travis Manion foundation.  All donations are greatly appreciated!!
