DENVER -- Tim Vogt gave his service to the Navy for almost 10 years.

“I was in a combat zone in the Persian Gulf,” he said.

During that time, he received many achievements and awards, but none of that mattered when it came to finding help when he came home.

“It was like trying to break into a vault,” he said.

Vogt was severely injured while in combat.

"I had fallen about a story and a half and landed on my feet, and all that compression just moved up and destroyed you know all the buffers that there were in your body that kinda protect you,” he said.

His injuries prevented him from supporting his family and they almost lost their home.

"Right as we were kinda getting the boot was when Seakr came into the picture,” Vogt said.

Ray Anderson is the founder and CEO of the Seaker Foundation.

"My company Seakr Engineering was profitable at the time so we decided we would fund a foundation … and donate to it to help the families primarily those killed in action,” Anderson said.

The organization recently expanded and decided to help soldiers who were injured from combat.

“They didn’t change my life, they gave me live,” Vogt said. “I mean I was ready to eat a bullet.”

Through the help of Seakr, Vogt is able to stand on his own two feet again.

“I was able to get all my creditors paid off with the help of Seakr. We were able to put $2,000 down on this lot to start building the house,” Vogt said. “Seakr came in and allowed me to really feel like a man again.”

And now he’s able to enjoy what life has to offer in their new home.
