At this week’s ASI Show in Orlando, Top 40 supplier BIC Graphic (asi/40480) announced a new partnership with the Wounded Warrior Project that has the supplier committing at least $100,000 in donations to the charitable organization in 2015. To kick off the year-long campaign, BIC brought Army veteran Jason Braase to the show to spend time in its booth and meet attendees.
Braase’s inspirational and remarkable tale began when he signed up with the Army National Guard and was deployed to fight in Iraq in 2004. Shortly thereafter, though, the Humvee that Braase was driving in Iraq drove over a roadside bomb and exploded. The blast nearly blew off the lower half of his right leg, but with the help of the Wounded Warrior Project, Braase now has a completely rebuilt leg and speaks regularly on the organization’s behalf.
Counselor caught up with Braase in the BIC Graphic booth at ASI Orlando to find out how the Wounded Warrior Project helps him and other veterans, and to hear how the organization’s new partnership with BIC Graphic will benefit service-people. Click here to watch the interview.
