Veteran Wish

Veteran’s Wish

Our SCP Warrior’s Wish program is about transforming lives. And we do it one person, one family at a time by fulfilling life-changing wishes of severely-injured service members — wishes that push them beyond surviving and allows them to thrive.

Each Warrior’s Wish is as unique as the person seeking something more. It may be a chance to reconnect with family after a long journey through recovery. A wish may come in the form of adaptive equipment to resume a hobby that carried so much meaning before injury. It could be tools or a workspace to launch a new career.

All wishes have a singular goal — to create better quality of life for those who sacrificed for our country.

SEMELI TOILOLO • UNITED STATES ARMY • TEXAS

Nothing beats a fresh-cut lawn when it comes to playing catch or an impromptu round of tag in the yard. Semeli Toilolo got his wish of providing the simplest of life’s pleasures for his family when Hope For The Warriors granted him a riding lawnmower. Yeah, he’s one of those lawn master types who finds trimming the lawn therapeutic.

Semeli deployed to Iraq five times between 2004 and 2011. He was injured during his third deployment, when he pushed past his own pain to help evacuate other soldiers to the nearest trauma station. He was treated in Kuwait for his physical injuries and returned to his unit in Iraq to finish his deployment on limited duty.

Semeli received a Purple Heart Award and medically retired in 2015. He’s currently completing his Bachelor’s Degree in Christian Ministries.
