Lisa Irish/The Daily Courier<br> Larry and Sharon Martinez accept a check Thursday for $200 for their son U.S. Marine Corps Lance Cpl. Michael Martinez from a local Wounded Warrior Program that was recently started up by the Military Order of the Purple Heart Major. John R. Tapia Ph.D. Chapter #608’s Commander Sgt. Alfonso Santillan Jr., (Ret).

Michael Martinez is undergoing advanced physical rehabilitation at the Military Advanced Training Center at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., after he lost one leg above the knee and the other leg below the knee when a remotely set off improvised explosive device detonated during a mission March 11, 2010, in the Helmand Province of southwestern Afghanistan.

The American Legion Ladies Auxiliary Post #78 in Dewey donated $100, the Military Order of the Purple Heart matched it to start the local Wounded Warrior Program, and U.S. Marine Corps. Col Fred Cone said Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University cadets will be fundraising for the program as well.

To donate to the local Wounded Warrior Program, please call 928-778-2030 or email alfonso_santillan@msn.com.
