Welcome to the Swartz Wingman Foundation
Eric Swartz attended the United States Air Force Academy where he was a member of the Sabre Drill team and excelled academically. After USAFA Eric attended St. Georges Medical School where he scored in 90th percentile of his boards.
Eric’s medical career came to a screeching halt with an onset of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. He struggled with the disease for the last four years of his life. Many attempts were made to find proper treatment, but all failed. Eric passed away in his sleep on October 31, 2011. We feel that had Eric received proper treatment, this tragic accident never would’ve occurred.
The Swartz Wingman Foundation, a non-profit organization, aims to help men and women suffering with PTSD, who like Eric, slipped through the cracks. Eric was a friend to everyone; he never refused a friend in need. We here at The Swartz Wingman Foundation simply aim to carry out Eric’s life work which was to help others; but most of all we aim to prevent a tragedy like Eric’s death, from happening again.
