Wounded Warriors Family Support was honored to present the McCardle family a new Ford Explorer! This gift from many generous donors provides freedom and will fit their family’s needs well.
On April 24, 2007, Marine Lance Corporal Robert “Bobby” McCardle was on his second deployment serving with the 1st Battalion, 4th Marines, in Al-Qaim, Iraq, when his vehicle was hit by an improvised explosive device. The blast resulted in the loss of his right leg below the knee, internal injuries, and a traumatic brain injury (TBI). Once back in the United States, Bobby underwent more than 40 surgeries at Balboa Medical Center in San Diego. His wife Stephanie remained at his side the entire time.
Now medically retired, Bobby and Stephanie have two children, a daughter Taylor and son Chase. They currently reside in Franklin, Wisconsin.
