CAPE CORAL, Fla -- The family of wounded solider Corey Kent is launching a new military organization aimed at helping our nation's heroes.
The hope is to help any all veterans, just as Corey was helped by the community.
The National Coalition for Patriots announced the launch of their new organization at the Veterans Memorial. The groups home base is in Cape Coral, but their service spreads nationwide.
"The hope is we don't have to turn anyone away," says Dan Ashby, the President of the National Coalition for Patriots.
Ashby's stepson Corey Kent was injured in Afghanistan back in July of 2010.
"We didn't think he was going to make it and its been about 15 months and to see where he was when we saw him in Germany to now it's a miracle," Ashby said.
It's his story that is the motivation behind this new group. "we've been very fortunate in the community in how they've helped us and this is just one small way we can give back and want to do it in any shape, way or form," Ashby said.
Their mission is to help all veterans whether it's physically, financially, or psychologically.
"Any need that they have. It's not too big or too small," says Mike Bohaychyk, secretary of the National Coalition for Patriots. "We want to become the premier organization to help soldiers. Not just wounded, but anyone coming home."
