Living After Electrocution: Career-Ending Line of Duty Injury
01:12:00
(This is the first of a 3 part series.) Tonight, our guest was the focus of our most recent Guns for Sons Raffle, Lewisville Firefighter Andy Allison. Andy was medically retired from the Lewisville Fire Department after being injured in a house fire on August 12, 2012. During the initial phase of firefighting operations, Andy directed a hose stream at a large body of fire in the laundry room and attic area above it. During this operation, the hose stream contacted live 220v electrical service. Andy was electrocuted for several seconds before falling to his knees and eventually breaking contact with the line. After several years of doctor visits, numerous surgeries, and hitting major road blocks in his recovery process, Andy was told at 31 years old that he was no going to be returning to his job; the career he once loved and called his "dream job". Joining Andy on tonight's episode will be Andy's wife, Amanda, and Lewisville Assistant Fire Chief, Terry McGrath. If you feel compelled by tonight's story, consider taking the Saint Florian Vow, a fundraiser focused on raising money for firefighters who experience a burn injury. By taking the vow, you commit to help raise $2,500, and if only 1,000 people are successful we can help cover every firefighter in the United States. The donations go into a fund committed strictly to assisting firefighters. If you'd like to join, please visit https://sonsoftheflag.kindful.com/saint-florian-vow today!

This year, we honored a man who's defended America's freedoms behind enemy lines and upon returning home devoted himself to helping other returing Veterans struggling with PTSD, the Honorable Allen B. Clark. After attending Phillips Exeter Academy, Allen graduated the United States Military Academy in 1963, after which he was commissioned in the Army Corps of Engineers. Two years after graduation from West Point, he volunteered for a tour in Vietnam where he served as a Military Intelligence officer assigned to the Fifth Special Forces Group.  Allen sustained injuries in an early-morning mortar attack at the Dak To Special Forces camp on June 17, 1967, that necessitated the amputation of both legs below his knees.  His military service and sacrifice were recognized with receipt of a Silver Star for Gallantry in Action, the Purple Heart, and the Combat Infantryman's Badge. He was airborne-qualified. Sons of the Flag is a nonprofit organization supporting military, first responders, and civilian burn survivors by providing funding for innovative research.
