Jason Lilley joined the Marines and became a crewman on a Huey helicopter. He was sent to Iraq in 2003 and participated in the initial invasion. During his time in Iraq he spent countless hours flying support missions for the Marines on the ground. These included resupply missions, security details, casualty evacuations, and much more. Upon separating from the Marines and coming home, Jason had over 28 surgeries on his knee. Eventually the doctors informed him that his leg was going to have to be amputated.
Due to the loss of his leg, he was unable to work for over 4 months. Cowtown Warriors stepped in and we were able to provide he and his family with over $13,000 worth of financial assistance for he and his family! Currently Jason is employed full time. He lives with his wife and 3 children. He has been able to take up a rock climbing hobby and works with support dogs to help his fellow veterans.
