WISH for OUR HEROES is a national non-profit organization that is dedicated to assisting the men and women of the United States active-duty military, and in some cases, Veterans. Military life is difficult—men and women selflessly serve our nation, while working for little pay, often putting their life on the line, and still dealing with home problems that place a large burden on their families.
For local Marine, Christopher Natto, his wife Sydney and their young son, Rhett, 2016 was a tough year. Christopher was hurt on a career-ending military recon mission that left him partially paralyzed. Homeless for the better part of the year, Sydney and Rhett were spending nights in his hospital room on a blow-up mattress.
Upon hearing about Christopher’s story, the community rallied behind the family by providing them with a new home in time for the holidays.
