Campaign Title

Our Mission

1. Raise awareness of the harsh circumstances our severely injured service members and their families face once their life threatening injuries are stabilized.
2. Greatly improve the quality of life of our wounded heroes, focusing our efforts on each individual candidate's needs.

3. We are literally walking thousands of miles in honor of our brothers and sisters in arms. The initial walk, the first of many, is the Mountain to Sea Trail (MTS) in NC. Stepping off Jockey's Ridge, NC, hiking across the state, ending at Clingsman Dome at the NC/TN border, and then doing a yo-yo and returning along the same path back to Jockey's Ridge - a journey of approximately 2,200 miles. As we hike this path we look forward to the opportunity to share our mission and our faith. We hope to bring to light the silent struggle known as PTSD and to break the barriers of stigmatization. Simply to say “You are not alone!!” Donations
can be made to “sponsor” the walk by the mile, the walk, in anyway you choose! All proceeds are being donated to Nine Line Foundation. A respectable 501(c)(3) organization that is a 100% Volunteer Force that insures ALL monies collected go DIRECTLY to meeting the financial and specialized needs of our most SEVERELY WOUNDED VETERANS!


Who We Are! 

In combat, a “Nine Line” is an emergency medevac request, and is often the difference between life and death for the most severely wounded soldiers. Nine Line Foundation aims to serve in a similar manner, offering a lifeline once wounded veterans return stateside.

Our goal is to rebuild, strengthen and enrich the quality of life of wounded veterans---one soldier at a time

We are a 100% Volunteer Force so ALL monies collected go DIRECTLY to meeting the financial and specialized needs of our most SEVERELY WOUNDED VETERANS!

How You Can Help!

In memory of my brother, Lexie R. Wallace, a veteran of WW II. He served his country proudly and lost both legs below the knees as a result of being wounded in battle. Yet he never complained and refused to let his injuries hinder him in anyway. He was truly a hero in many ways.

Professional Touch Paint. Met in Wake Forest NC. Thanks Mr. Lugo!
You ran into a colleague of mine near Wake Forest today, Michael Kimsal. He shared your story and immediately I knew I had to send a few bucks your way. I'm not much for religion or faith, but I believe whole heartedly in humanity and I can't imagine people who deserve some humanity more than those who have, perhaps, been part of some of the worst aspects of it. Best of luck!
