2021 Trackchair Recipients
2021 Armed Forces Bowl Trackchair Awarded
|Helicopters for Heroes facilitates the award of several Trackchairs each year. One of the recipients in 2021 is Hank Seay III.
Hank has been selected as the 2021 Lockheed Martin Armed Forces Bowl recipient to receive an All-Terrain Trackchair. This presentation will be made during the football game at TCU’s Amon G. Carter Stadium on December 22nd, 2021.
Hank shares, “I’m unable to do the things I used to do and have a hard time getting around. The Trackchair would definitely give me a better life. I assure you it will be used often especially during hunting season and around the pond. It’ll get me out there with my boys and dad again.”
Hank Seay III served in the Marine Corps from 1988 to 1992 and belonged to the famous VMA – 214 Blacksheep Squadron. Hank injured his knees in the service which has led him to numerous surgeries over the years and limited his mobility. To date Hank has undergone 47 knee surgeries and has had both knees replaced, including one twice.
|Hank is still very active in his community and has served as a city councilman and Mayor of Castroville, an auxiliary member of the VFW in La Coste and also coaches the youth in Devine in all sports. Hank is married to his wife Tanya and together they have four boys and one granddaughter. He still enjoys being active with sports and loves to hunt and fish with his boys.
