Here are the stories of three United States veterans who had the opportunity to start new after coming home from war, thanks to Operation FINALLY HOME.
Operation FINALLY HOME provides custom-built, mortgage-free homes to wounded, ill and injured veterans, the widows of the fallen and their families, creating a solid foundation for them to move forward in their lives. By removing the financial burden of a mortgage and providing accommodations tailored to a veteran’s special needs, our heroes and their families can rebuild their lives with less worry.
To accomplish this important mission, Operation FINALLY HOME partners with national and local corporate sponsors, builder associations, builders, developers, individual contributors, and volunteers in local communities across the United States—people like you who can make a donation to help the next veteran.While on deployment in Iraq, U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Second Class Michael Hard proudly displays the Stars and Stripes in front of his modified MRAP military vehicle.[/caption]
When U.S. Coast Guard Petty Officer Second Class (PO2) Michael Hard was honorably discharged from the military in 2013 with severe injuries, he couldn’t help but feel a great sense of responsibility for the men and women still away on deployment.
