SAN RAMON, Calif. (KTVU) - The Sentinels of Freedom Foundation, based in San Ramon, is dedicated to helping injured post 9/11 veterans transition back into civilian life.
In 2008, HT Tran lost his right eye after being hit with an I.E.D. He says the hardest part of his recovery was finding his purpose.
That's when The Sentinels of Freedom stepped in, helping injured veterans with education and career planning.
The organization helped Tran get a vehicle, apartment, and furniture. He is now married with two children and owns his own business that hires other veterans.
Tran says, "It's not just about giving, it's about guiding and walking together".
