Tony Orlando and his meeting w/ Quadruple Amputee Brenden Marrocco (19) and his Parents in Germany.
Marrocco, a Staten Island, New York, native, enlisted in the military in December 2007. On April 12, 2009, Marrocco was returning from a night mission when his armored vehicle triggered a roadside bomb, the Gary Sinise Foundation shared. Marrocco lost both of his arms and legs. According to the foundation, Marrocco was left with shrapnel wounds in his left eye, as well as severe burns on his neck and face. His left carotid artery was severed. His nose, left eye socket and facial bones were all broken.

Brenden. Your brothers and sisters in arms are always with you and any of our wounded. Doesn’t matter if your wounds are physical or emotional. Visit any American Legon or VFW and talk to us.
Thank the Gary Sinise Foundation for truly caring and doing the work of Crist for our Warriors.
