Amputee Vet Raising Funds For The Wall Needs Your Prayers

I was in touch with my friend, triple-amputee vet Airman Brian Kolfage, last night & today. The campaign to raise funds for the border wall that he started has grown far larger & far faster than he ever expected. In just 5 days, Airman Kolfage has raised over $15 million to keep Americans safe from terrorists, criminals, & drug dealing cartels.

Kolfage, an Air Force veteran who signed up to defend America after the 9/11 terror attacks, has been bombarded with interview requests from media and he frequently travels to news stations on his own to do them. On top of that, managing logistics for the massive wall operation has turned out to be extremely taxing.

Management of the wall project includes: Continuous communications with the Trump administration & various members of Congress and legal experts, creating & maintaining a new website, data analysis, maintaining an engaging presence on several social media platforms, and responding to as many people as he can who have questions (thousands), among other things.

You have to remember, Airman Kolfage has to get around in a wheelchair as he lost both of his legs at the hips, and he only has one hand to type & use his phone with (along with everything else).

Currently, Airman Kolfage is working about 20 hours a day on the wall campaign. If he forgets something when he gets tired & goes to bed, it’s a major chore just to climb to the floor, then to his wheelchair, then back into bed when he’s done. He can’t just get up & walk where he’s going like most of us can.

Here’s a video clip from the Gary Sinise Foundation. Brian was interviewed by Sinise in 2016. In the video, Brian explains that it takes a “ton of work” just to walk. He goes on to tell of when he & his wife Ashley had their first child, and how he felt his body wearing down because of the energy it took to take care of his new family. Brian had turned down an offer from the actor for his foundation to build him a home because he thought there were other wounded veterans who needed it more. Watch.

If Brian felt that then, you can only imagine what he’s feeling now with the rigors of the new campaign to fund the wall, and also taking care of his family. Amputee veterans have many more hurdles to jump in life than we do. We think of them as larger-than-life heroes, which they are, yet, they get tired too, and most of us will never experience what they have to overcome every minute of every day.

On top of taking care of his family, a beautiful wife and two amazing kids, Airman Kolfage is also managing his coffee company, Military Grade Coffee, through which he donates 10% of proceeds to veterans charities. The company is also how he provides for his family.

Brian Kolfage & his family

Airman Kolfage is a highly motivated and energetic person. He’s determined to see the funding for the wall go through to keep Americans safe and he’s not taking a dime for it. His current hectic schedule is turning out to be exhausting, though.

I communicated with Brian earlier & he mentioned again that he is getting very little sleep trying to keep up with everything. I’ve known Airman Kolfage for about 8 years and we’re good friends. We’ve also worked together on several projects. We’re in constant contact via text or by phone & he normally laughs at jokes I crack & makes them himself, but not so much since the wall project started, and last night he laughed at nothing & abruptly said he’s going to bed early because he only slept 4 hours. I can tell he is feeling the effects of the campaign.

Kolfage didn’t ask me to post this, and he wouldn’t ask for help for something like this, but I’m asking that you keep him in your prayers. For strength, stamina, a stress-free environment, and for peace of mind. He has incredible willpower, but he’s not indefatigable (He’s close to it, but we all have our limits, even the best of us).

Many on the left want to see Kolfage fail, and they are attacking him relentlessly. I’ve seen many of the messages sent to him, and those posted online & in articles. He has absolute pure hate coming his way 24/7, with many telling him to “kill himself,” yet he doesn’t let it get to him.

Thanks for considering keeping him in your thoughts & prayers. He’s a good friend & I’d like to see him around for a long time as I’m sure we all would.
