The motto of MDRA is Freedom to Fly. These three simple words have a profound meaning, and they put MDRA in a class of its own. While we enjoy the Freedom to Fly, it doesnít come without a price. The freedoms we enjoy have been hard fought for since the inception of the United States of America. Our brave and selfless soldiers, marines, sailors, and airmen defend and protect us by putting themselves in harmís way. Many have paid the ultimate price, and many more have entered a second battle for their own lives due to causalities sustained on the battlefield.
The recovery process for these heroes is often long and challenging. We owe our military and their families a huge debt of gratitude. Fisher House provides accommodations for the families of the wounded, so they can be close to the ones they love and can assist in their recuperation process.
Please join MDRA in supporting Fisher House at Red Glare X, and help show our appreciation for the sacrifices of our military and their families.

Donations can be made online here and at the field.
Any amount is appreciated, and all proceeds will be given to Fisher House
on behalf of the members of MDRA.
