Daniel Wright, a Combat-Wounded Pennsylvania Veteran To Be Honored With New Car.  He was chosen to receive this life-changing gift after applying to MWSF’s Transporation4Heroes program. The application has a rigorous vetting process to ensure that the veteran chosen to receive a vehicle is the best recipient to participate in the program. MWSF works with the veteran to ensure that the gift of a payment-free vehicle assists them in their successful transition out of the military and into their new civilian life.

Retired U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Daniel Wright, Jr. was born in Newark, NJ, and grew up in Newark and Irvington, NJ. He joined the U.S. Marines Corps in 2003 and later joined the U.S. Army in 2007. He was part of the 101st Airborne Division at Ft. Campbell, KY, the 2nd Medical Battalion at Camp Lejeune, NC, and 18th Engineers in Schweinfurt Germany. Staff Sergeant Wright served two tours in Iraq and two tours in Afghanistan. During one of his deployments to Iraq, he was wounded in action and received the Purple Heart. He retired from the U.S. Army in 2014. When transitioning out of the military, he faced many challenges, but he discovered through a therapeutic art program, that art helped him deal with the wounds of war. Using his love and talent for drawing he decided to start his own small business, a mobile tattoo shop, called Marzmade. His shop is a converted school bus and travels between New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. He currently lives in Catasauqua, PA, with his family.

Join us at this event as we honor the service and sacrifice of this true American Hero.
