First American is proud to donate to special organizations that encompass a genuine mission to help others and make society a better place. The company is proud to have a history of donating to the Halo for Freedom Warrior Foundation, which encompasses this ideal and more. The foundation holds a special place in First American’s heart with its touch of patriotism and its humble beginnings started by founder Dana Bowman, a retired former member of the United States Army’s elite parachute team, The Golden Knights1.  After a tragic accident during training, Bowman lost both of his legs, and he is the first double amputee in history to reenlist in the U.S. army. First American was honored to have the opportunity to meet and speak with Bowman, gaining real insight into his legendary heroism and incredible foundation.
