Learn About Homes For Our Troops


I don't know how many of you watched the Extreme Home Makeover program Monday night, about the wonderful lady in Fayetteville who has been and is now able to help more women because of the generosity of Extreme Home Makeover Jubilee/Marshall Family, and all the volunteers and vendors that made this possible, well it was a real tear jerker.

This is another program for our troops and I with a lot of very generous people were actually able to give our support in such a worth while cause, and I am so thankful and blessed to have gotten to know this particular Wounded Warrior and his family. I will tell you he is a wonderful young man that was tragically wounded, with brain trauma, but he and his family are true American heroes with their will and zest for life. I just wish I had the courage and stamina to carry on with the appreciation and just plain thankful that they are alive and still together as family.

I am asking you and your friends that if you are looking for a worthwhile charity or cause, I implore you to please go to their website and check them out. The homes they are building are designed and built to be handicap accessible to allow the families and the Wounded Warriors as much comfort and mobility as possible.

SGT Jonathan Roberts Waxhaw,N.C. His Story

This is just one of the many personal stories that Homes For Our Troops have helped to read more stories go to their website:

On August 17, 2005 SGT Jonathan Roberts was struck by an 18 wheeler in Baghdad. Jon was on his way to pick up an officer from the airport when he rounded a corner and saw a semi truck coming straight at him. He went to swerve and ended up hitting a tree and then being struck by the semi.

After these two major jolts, Jon was rushed to a hospital in Bagdad where they performed emergency brain surgery on him. Jon spent the next 3 months in a coma and his doctors recommended that his parent's put him in a nursing home and move on. Eventhough many nurses, therapists and doctors gave up on Jon his parents refused to. By God's grace Jon is now starting to talk again and is walking with assistance
