Colonel Stacey Corn
Because he is an Army veteran who has dealt with PTSD himself, Stacey understands the impact of the condition on veteran families. With his non-profit organization Eagle 6 Adventures, he arranges for vets suffering from PTSD to be flown to Charlotte County from wherever they live in the U.S., and he takes them out on his boat to relax, paddle board, fish, or just to enjoy the water. The service comes at no cost to the veterans or their families.
