Re: Lt. Charles Dewey “Dee” Elliott, III, (USN, Ret.)
Dear Friends of Dee Elliott,
As part of Independence Corps long term mission, helping U.S. Veterans who
have incurred a disabling injury or illness in connection with their military service, we
have long provided many such veterans with high-tech “ 22nd Century” mobility devices.
In addition, we have another mission we call Spartan Weekend, working with
Veterans, their families and friends to reduce the number of veterans taking their own
lives, and to provide aid to families impacted by veteran suicides where we were not yet
able to help prevent such tragedies.
As critical as these two missions are and will continue to be to the Independence
Corps, we are occasionally asked to aid a disabled veteran in some other way.
I personally have known Dee Elliott for almost a decade. As you know, Dee is a
veteran who has, since his military service, himself long been devoted to helping other
veterans in need. Dee is a US Naval Academy Graduate and a veteran of the Viet Nam
War. We learned recently that today Dee is in another battle. Dee recently was
diagnosed and is courageously living with a form of ALS that is aggressively attacking
his ability to do all the many things he has done as a husband, father, veteran, citizen
and supporter of our veterans.
We have been asked to serve as a conduit for Dee’s friends and others who want
to earmark a tax exempt charitable contribution to help U.S. Veterans, to specifically
pay and or to provide essential supplies for certain modifications of the Elliott’s home so
as to accommodate Dee’s new mobility and other challenges, and we are truly honored
to be able to perform this service for Dee Elliott.
You may make a tax deductible donation payable to The Independence Corps
and earmark that 100% of the funds you donate, deposited into the account of
Independence Corps, a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization, whose EIN/Federal
Identification Number is 36-4605639, only be spent to pay for the necessary
modifications to Dee Elliott’s home, or you may designate your donation for such home
modifications and if any funds remain that they be used exclusively for such other needs
as Dee may come to have as a result of his illness.
In accordance with IRS regulations, upon receipt of your donation you will
receive a letter confirming that no goods or services were provided to you in connection
with your donation.
It is your thoughtfulness and caring for all of our Nation’s post 9/11 wounded
veterans that allows the Independence Corps to help to our American military’s disabled
service personnel, providing the independence our brave disabled service men and
women who have sacrificed for us, deserve. The Independence Corps continues to
operate only with volunteers and we have no paid staff.
