Quantum Spokesperson Bryan Anderson has been chosen to receive the 2019 Rare Life Award from Eagle Rare – Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
Eagle Rare is an organization that believes in recognizing rare individuals. Nominees for their Rare Life Honor are chosen based on their individual stories. Some nominees are heroic, and some are inspirational. Whatever traits the individual possesses, they are submitted into one of six categories: Courage, Leadership, Survival, Devotion, Character and Heroism.
Anyone who has met Bryan knows that he exhibits many of these traits. He has overcome significant challenges in his life after being injured by an IED in Iraq in 2005. As one of the few triple amputees to have survived his injuries in Iraq, Bryan has dedicated his life to helping his fellow veterans. His service as an ambassador to the Gary Sinise Foundation, as well as his work as the official spokesperson for USA Cares, shows his selflessness and willingness make a difference.
As part of the award, Eagle Rare donates $50,000 to the winner’s charity of choice. Bryan will donate the funds to USA Cares, a national non-profit that is based in Louisville, KY. USA Cares is dedicated to assisting post 9-11 veterans and their families in times of crisis. USA Cares offers a variety of financial and advocational programs to veterans, such as housing assistance, career transition, emergency assistance and much more.
We congratulate Bryan on receiving this honor!
