The Track Chair for a Hero Committee has raised close to $30,000 since January for the purpose of providing specialized Track Chairs to wounded veterans returning from Iraq and/or Afghanistan. Those funds have allowed the purchase of two chairs for two such veterans.

Both veterans will be in Goldendale for a special salute dinner on July 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the Goldendale Grange, at which the men will be presented their chairs. The dinner is free to the public, though tickets are required to attend. In addition to the two veterans, Sue Maloney of the Army Wounded Warrior Program will be present to speak. Tickets are available at the American Legion and the Greater Goldendale Area Chamber of Commerce.

The Track Chair is a specialized wheelchair with tracks. It's been called an ATV for an individual. It allows remarkable mobility over a wide range of terrain, giving users access to hunting, fishing, beach roaming, and other activities.
