Legrand Strickland

An IED explosion in Afghanistan stole Legrand’s legs, but not his spirit. He dreamed of driving the 1964 Chevy Impala replica he and his father worked together to rebuild.

The dream car sat dormant … until Soldier’s Wish stepped in to make a difference. Legrand has found new independence in driving this special car, which has been retrofitted with hand controls to accommodate his disability.

Together, we were able to put this wounded American Hero back on the road.
