OUR MISSION & STORY.
Francesca and Scott Parker, Founders.
Parker's Platoon was founded in 2007 by Scott, Francesca & DJ Parker to honor Scott’s father, Roger Parker who was a Soldier of the 1st Cavalry Division in the U.S. Army who served in Vietnam from 1970-1971.
Scott has a passion for helping those with Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI), which is something Scott was diagnosed with (and experiences symptoms from) as a result of his hard-hitting hockey days in the National Hockey League.
Whether it's pairing soldiers with specially trained service dogs that specialize in helping TBI and PTSD sufferers, providing a sanctuary of a positive activity on a secluded ranch, annual fly-fishing escapes, or healing hot springs retreats, Parker's Platoon has made great strides in assisting soldiers deal with their traumatic experiences and re-acclimate to society.
