Lee Greenwood teams up again with Helping A Hero

May 17, 2017 GMT

Houston-based 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-partisan organization, Helping A Hero, presented a specially adapted home for local wounded hero, Sgt (Ret.) Daniel Cowart, on Saturday, May 13 in Santa Fe, Texas. Country icon Lee Greenwood and special guests officially presented the keys to Sgt Cowart and his family in honor of his sacrifices for our country.

May 13 was also Sergeant Cowart’s 10th anniversary of his alive date where he lost his left leg to a suicide bomber in Iraq during his time serving in the War on Terror. In addition, Cowart suffered nerve damage to his right leg and hearing loss in both ears, which makes it more difficult for him to perform basic daily functions.

Cowart is currently working on his college degree and wants to work with other wounded veterans to assist with their recovery. He believes sharing his story and encouraging other wounded warriors to press through the pain and challenges of recovery will help each of them transition to civilian life more successfully. He credits his wife and their twin 11-year-old daughters, Alyssa and Avalon, with being the source of his strength in his recovery.

These homes would not be possible without the generous support of sponsors.
