Ali Tucker - Military Transitional Course

Chad and Ali Tucker, Ashley Metcalfe – Military Transitional Course

Date grant awarded: February 5, 2019

A few years after Chad and Ali Tucker got married, their brother, Adam, was injured in the Air Force and was eventually medically discharged back to the States. Shortly thereafter, Chad, who also served in the armed forces, was injured and he too was medically discharged. To say this was a difficult time emotionally and financially would be an understatement however nothing could have prepared them for what was to come.

On January 31, 2016 Adam took his own life. He is the reason Ali and her team have founded Sheepdog Support, to advocate for veterans across America. Their newest program – Life Skills Courses for Veterans – fulfills their long term goal of creating and providing transitional courses for military personnel leaving the service and veterans who have recently returned home.
