TCOP Honored with 2018 Freedom Award
Tillges Certified Orthotic Prosthetic Inc. was honored with the 2018 Orthotic Prosthetic Group of America (OPGA) Freedom Award for their compassionate service and dedication to veterans and active-duty soldiers. The OPGA Freedom Award recognizes OPGA Members who have provided orthotic and prosthetic fitting and/or rehabilitation for soldiers wounded in action.
“During every major conflict, combat injuries have caused large numbers of service members to lose one or more of their limbs. These brave individuals are one of the most visible and enduring reminders of the cost and sacrifices of protecting our great country,” says OPGA President Todd Eagen. “Thanks to the high level of medical care delivered by independent O&P providers, most of these young men and women will go on to live full and productive civilian lives or return to military duty if they so desire. OPGA is proud to recognize our Member, Tillges Certified Orthotic Prosthetic Inc. for their service and commitment to America’s veterans.”
OPGA is a member service organization comprised of independently owned orthotic and prosthetic facilities. The OPGA Freedom Award is presented annually to deserving OPGA Members in conjunction with Veterans Day.
