In November 2016, NWLB learned that retired officer and marine Kyle Olinger was struggling in his new home in Arizona. Kyle Olinger sustained his injuries breaking up a car theft in 2003. After being shot in the neck, Officer Olinger continued to serve the Montgomery County Police Department until his retirement in 2012. When he relocated to Arizona, he realized he could not see his property and struggled with his health and mental outlook. Responding to a call from his wife, NWLB organized a fundraiser and reached out to Howe and Howe Technologies, Inc. to order and personalize an all-terrain wheelchair (“Rip Chair”) for Office Olinger. With the assistance of the Gary Sinise Foundation, NWLB and Aaron Bailey delivered the new Rip Chair to his family in December 2017, and Officer Olinger is very thankful and excited for the gift of mobility. Kyle and his family thank everyone who supported this important mission and NWLB especially thanks Tony Tuolo from Howe & Howe and Rose Borisow GraFX for their contributions as well.
