Ryan's Dad Doug, tells the story:
My name is Doug Robinson and I am the proud father of Sgt. Ryan M. Robinson, USMC. Ryan passed away on September 1st, 2008 as a result of injuries received while in combat serving in Iraq in 2006. Ryan loved the Marine Corps Ball and was deeply concerned about wounded Marines that were unable to attend due to their injuries. He said to me, “Dad, wouldn’t it be great if there was an organization that could get these wounded Marines to the Ball. An all-expenses-paid night out of the hospital or their homes with fitted dress blues, an escort, and a limousine. It would remind them they have not been forgotten, that their sacrifice is remembered.”
Ryan is gone now but in his memory, Ryan’s Project aims to fulfill Ryan’s vision by sponsoring and coordinating the attendance for wounded North Texas Marines to the 2011 Marine Cor ps Ball in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas. This debut project will seek to provide the admission fee, transportation, and custom uniform tailoring. Later as we grow, Ryan’s Project will reach out to active and veteran service members, collaborating with other veteran organizations in an effort to meet the needs of our wounded heroes. We hope to touch the lives of those wounded after sacrificing so much for their country.
