One of the biggest contributors is Terry Johnson, owner of the Salmon Catcher Lodge where the troops stay for most of their Alaskan visit. Johnson turned the entire lodge over to the team for an entire week. A retired pilot for UPS and former Louisville resident, he has a habit of contributing to worthy causes. He has given up rooms at his lodge for several charitable causes, the IPA Children’s Hospital and the Dream Foundation to name a couple. Stricken by kidney disease himself, he identifies with the troops and their individual struggles with their health.
