INJURED AIR FORCE RESCUE PILOT AWARDED TRUCK FROM WORK VESSELS FOR VETS, INC & US VETERANS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

MYSTIC, CT - USAF Major (ret) J. Robert Scoggins of Colorado really didn’t want to ask for help.  He is starting a farm and raising a family now that his Air Force career as a rescue pilot ended with severe injuries after twelve years and multiple deployments to Afghanistan, Iraq and Africa.  But he really needed a truck to work the farm and transport their produce to markets in the Colorado Springs/Denver area.

Work Vessels for Vets, Inc is a nonprofit with the mission to obtain equipment for injured veterans who are starting a business in partnership with the U.S. Veterans Chamber of Commerce (USVCC) stepped up to find a truck for this veteran. Rob Scoggins received his commission as an officer in the US Air Force at his graduation from the US Air Force Academy in 2003. He served in Balad AB Iraq; Khandahar Airfield and Camp Bastion, Afghanistan; and Camp Lemmonier, Djibouti, Horn of Africa and rose to the rank of Major.  He was a combat rescue pilot, leading a 6-man HH-60G combat helicopter.  He engaged in 252 combat missions, rescuing and recovering 291 individuals and is credited with saving 151 lives.   Over 200 of those missions and almost all of the 291 Americans, allies, and civilians were in Afghanistan, 2010.  He was medically retired with 100% combat injuries in 2015.                                                           “When we learned of this amazing warrior’s combat history and subsequent injuries, we set out to find the truck he so desperately needed,” said Cathy Cook, Executive Director of Work Vessels for Vets.  “Maj. Scroggins has been trying to clear stumps and haul products with a hand wheelbarrow.  That’s not easy with a leg brace!”
