"We were doing a company-sized patrol near Marjah, Afghanistan – a sweep for improvised explosive devices," said the 50-year-old retired Marine sergeant. "I was with the rear element with a couple Marines when a Marine fell into a ditch. I reached down to help him up right as the explosive was detonated."

It was Dec. 23, 2009, and the explosive left Mackey with both legs amputated above the knee and wounds to his right arm and abdomen. Read the rest of this entry »

Sometimes, a name says it all.

May marked a decade that the Semper Fi Fund has remained always faithful to wounded, ill and injured Marines and sailors across the country.

The organization's team of several hundred volunteers across the United States provides services to military families, service members and veterans, aiding treatment for conditions that include post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury, among other conditions.

For a decade in North Carolina alone, more than 17,000 grants worth more than $22 million have been issued to active duty service members and veterans.
Nationally, more than 59,000 grants exceeding $78 million have been distributed to at least 10,000 service members.

"Hitting 10 years is absolutely a celebration," said Laura Castellvi, 49, of Camp Lejeune. "It has been a true privilege to be with an organization that has accomplished so much in just 10 years. We're not going to stop at 10, though. We have so many service members out there that still need us."

Many of the men and women granted aid from the Semper Fi Fund will need assistance during and after their service, Castellvi said. Read the rest of this entry »
