Wounded Warrior Tim Fallon
1LT Timothy E. Fallon, USMC (Retired) is an outstanding example of a young highly motivated Marine officer, who is an inspiration to all who have the pleasure to know him. In November 2010, during the fourth month of Tim’s tour in Helmand Province, Afghanistan, he was conducting a night patrol and was hit by an Improvised Explosive Device (IED). The explosion took the sight of both eyes and caused multiple shrapnel wounds. The next thing Tim knew he was in Walter Reed Army Medical Center, Washington, DC undergoing treatment to attempt to restore some eyesight and heal his other wounds. By Early December he had experienced three operations on his eyes which managed to save them from total destruction. To this day, he is legally blind and can only see vague shapes and shadows. Tim came to the attention of the Wounded Warrior Mentor Program and Ned Rupp was asked to be his mentor in early 2011. Read more >>>
