This project is dedicated to Corporal Joseph Daniel Logan. Joey and his crewmembers, Captain Daniel B. Bartle, Captain Nathan R. McHone, Master Sergeant Travis W. Riddick, Corporal Kevin J. Reinhard and Corporal Jesse W. Stites lost their lives when their Helicopter crashed into the mountains of Afghanistan. They were flying their second combat mission that night. These brave men were professional soldiers and highly decorated veterans. They went into battle for our country without hesitation; they loved this nation and the Marine Corps. They were honored by their unit, The 363 Red Lions and are called the “ FALLEN SIX”.The Red Lions project is a place for combat Veterans to clear their minds. They are Building six cabins, one for each of the six fallen heroes that went down in the accident that night. The cabins are for the use of returning soldiers and their families, as a place to heal, reconnect and ease the stresses of returning home. Or just to find ones sense of self.

Over the past eight years, Bob Nilsson, a Veteran and a long time executive at Turner Construction, has been helping returning soldiers at Walter Reed explore their entrepreneurial dreams. He found that the minds of wounded warriors are full of ideas and inventions. Some of the soldiers had innovative ideas like an invention to improve the handles of equipment used by amputees so that they work more effectively with the human hand. Bob began to think about how he could help these wounded soldiers explore their entrepreneurial dreams. He could see a spark in their eyes!Along with Amanda Weathersby and her team at QA Company LLC, Bob has built the 100 Entrepreneurs Project which has put together 100 case studies and business lessons learned for classes that are available free to soldiers at Walter Reed. Volunteer Entrepreneurs join classes as speakers, and in some cases, provide internships and mentoring to veterans interested in starting their own businesses. A recent case study was Pleasance Silicki, whose remarkable yoga business, Lil Omm, offers specialized classes to reduce stress among unique groups, including the caregivers of wounded. In collaboration with the Institute for Veterans and Military Families and the Bob Woodruff Foundation, the 100 Entrepreneurs Project promotes grants to attend events like the National Veteran Small Business Conference and Exposition. Some of the participants go on to attend college or MBA programs, and some go on to start a business of their own.For more information or to make a larger direct donations please contact Bob Nilsson at RobertN802@aol.com or 917-403-8807
