Sergeant Jordan Brown faithfully served our country for seven years. During his second tour in Iraq, he broke his left arm. He later learned that cancer was the underlying cause of the break. The cancer is gone now, along with his left arm. 

Jordan, his wife Monica and their two daughters now live on a small farm in Southern Iowa.  Mowing the 2-acre farm lawn would normally be Jordan’s responsibility, but Monica did this last year with an 18-inch hand push mower.

Jordan has been working with Operation First Response to help other wounded veterans.  Following an interview at Des Moines radio station KGGO for this cause, Jordan was surprised with his very own joystick-controlled zero-turn riding lawn mower, donated by Country Clipper.

Operation First Response, Inc., supports our nation’s Wounded Heroes and their families with personal and financial needs. Services are provided from the onset of injury, throughout their recovery period and along their journey from military life into the civilian world. Financial aid varies as each case is based on individual needs ranging from rent, utilities, vehicle payments, groceries, clothing and travel expenses.  For more information or to donate to this organization, visit
