The Airpower Foundation was proud to join CW5 (Ret.) Gary Linfoot and his wife Mary as Gary was the first paralyzed veteran to walk at the Statue of Liberty thanks to his new Ekso Skeleton device which he received at American Airlines Sky Ball XI this past October.  The purchase of the Ekso Skeleton device for Gary was made possible through a generous grant provided by the Infinite Hero Foundation who donated the funds at Sky Ball XI where Gary was surprised with a check to purchase him the device.  The Airpower foundation was one of 8 organizations chosen to receive a grant in support of our mission to assist the most critical mental and physical challenges facing our returning military.  This past Veteran’s Day, Gary was invited to walk at the Statue of Liberty where he inspired everyone as he took the first steps on the island as a paralyzed war Veteran.  We want to thank the Infinite Hero Foundation for their support of the Airpower Foundation’s mission to assist our nations wounded heroes through the fundraising efforts of American Airlines Sky Ball.
