MCAF Provides Computer for Wounded Warrior’s Recovery Efforts
SSgt Jason “Crash” Jensen, a medically retired Marine and wounded warrior received a new computer with graphic software installed courtesy of MCAF. Jensen is transitioning and acquiring training in graphic arts. When LeeAnn Mitchell, the MCAF Director of Development learned of Jensen’s needs she promptly provided help in his recuperation process by using funds to purchase the computer. SSgt Jensen plans on using the computer to create graphics for non-profits.
Jensen was so honored by the gift that he provided an autographed copy of an original art piece to MCA&F. The art piece, “We Bought Your Freedom” had hung in the USMC Museum at Quantico and won first place during an art competition. The art work will now be displayed at MCA&F offices in Quantico.
The Marine Corps Association & Foundation supports Active Duty, Reserve and Wounded Marines through myriad programs including Commanders’ Unit Libraries, the Marine Excellence Awards, and Commanders’ Forums. You can become involved and support Marines by joining MCA&F or through donations to MCAF, a 501(C)3 charity.
