Rotary hosts Wounded Warrior Project speaker
IMLAY CITY — Cindy Parsons, a northwest Ohio woman whose son was permanently disabled during by an explosion while serving in the Army in Iraq, will be speaking about the Wounded Warrior Project at the Imlay City Rotary Club’s Jan. 18 meeting.
Parsons’ son, Sgt. Shane Parsons, joined the Army right after graduating from high school in Fostoria, Ohio. In 2006 Sgt. Parsons lost his legs and suffered a brain injury when a roadside bomb detonated under the Humvee he was driving. Sgt. Parsons has undergone 15 surgeries since his initial injury.
Founded in 2002 in Roanoke, Va., the Wounded Warrior Project, now based in Jacksonville, Fla., offers combat wounded service members and their families a wide variety of support programs.
The Imlay City Rotary Club meets every Wednesday at noon at Countryside Banquet Center, 596 South Cedar in Imlay City.
