Carrie’s Army career abruptly ended because of an automobile accident that left her an amputee. Carrie was medically retired in November of 1995, leaving behind a Military career she greatly enjoyed.
With a passion to continue to serve, hoping her new service might benefit the men and women of her former military family, and with no expectation of the events that will now unfold at Skyball, Carrie volunteered to be a test subject to help DEKA Research develop and design the most advanced robotic human controlled prosthetic arm in history.
To Carrie’s great surprise, Independence Corps Foundation reached out to her and told her she was our first candidate for her own Luke Arm.
Now, we are asking you to help us make this so.
