SERVING NORTH TEXAS MARINES SINCE 2010
Sgt. Ryan Robinson passed away on September 1st, 2008 as a result of injuries received in combat from his 2006 Iraq deployment. He was only 29 years old. Ryan was a hero in Iraq, and at home; his loss devastated his family and friends.
Ryan loved the Marine Corps Ball and was deeply concerned about wounded Marines unable to attend due to their injuries. before his passing he said to his father, “Dad, wouldn’t it be great if there was an organization that could get these wounded Marines to the Ball? An all-expenses-paid night out of the hospital or their homes with fitted dress blues and a limousine. It would remind them they have not been forgotten, that their sacrifice is remembered.”
Ryan is gone, but in his memory, Ryan’s Project aims to fulfill Ryan’s vision by sponsoring and coordinating the attendance of wounded North Texas Marines annual Marine Corps Birthday Ball in Fort Worth/Dallas, Texas. Ryan’s Project also assists, when possible, in the funding necessary to train and place service dogs with disabled military service members through K-9′s for Freedom and Indepence.
As Ryan’s Project reaches out to active and veteran service members, collaborating with other veteran organizations in an effort to meet the needs of our wounded heroes. We hope to touch the lives of those wounded after sacrificing so much for their country.
