Clark & Associates is helping wounded Iraq, Afghanistan veterans walk again
Waterloo, IA – On Monday in Waterloo, Rep. Bruce Braley (IA-01) will visit Clark & Associates, a locally-owned provider of prosthetics and orthotics, to highlight new technology being used to help wounded warriors from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan walk again. Braley is the highest-ranking Democrat on the House Veterans Affairs Subcommittee on Economic Opportunity.
For years, Clark & Associates has worked closely with the Department of Defense and the Veterans Administration to provide prosthetics for wounded warriors returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan. Clark & Associates have been recognized for their work providing technologically-advanced prosthetic devices to veterans.
Braley will meet with founder Dennis Clark to obseve the technology and see the fitting of a new, ultra-lightweight prosthetic for Derick Hurt, an Army veteran who lost both his legs in Iraq.
