The Meaning of Valor
VALOR for LIFE is a non-profit organization providing veterans with no cost surgical spine care, general orthopedic specialty care, and treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) through pulsed magnetic therapy.
Valor is defined as “great courage in the face of danger, especially in battle”, a word that applies to all the heroes who risk their lives for the freedom and welfare of their countrymen. But is the valor gone once those men and women return home? We don’t think so. Valor is lifelong, and the battle for physical and mental health and wellness of our veterans is a growing issue that needs support and attention. That’s where VALOR for LIFE can help. We honor the commitment and sacrifices of members of the armed forces by providing no cost surgeries, specialty medical care, and PTSD treatments.
Founder and Chairperson, Dr. Robert S. Bray, Jr. is not only a world renowned neurological spine surgeon, but also served as a Major while stationed as Chief of Neurosurgery at the David Grant Medical Center during 20 years of combined active and reserve duty with the United States Air Force. Dr. Bray witnessed first-hand the sacrifices made by the members of our armed services, and was humbled and inspired by the heroes he treated in that time and since.
