Broadview recently contributed to the non-profit organization Homes for Our Troops. Here, Broadview was able to lend a hand in the creation of providing comfort for troops when returning to their families. Broadview's involvement in Homes for Our Troops continues the mission of rebuilding lives for injured soldiers.
Homes for Our Troops is a non-profit organization that was founded in 2004. Their mission is to help those who have selflessly given to our country and have returned home with serious injuries. They raise donations for construction on servicemen's homes in order to give them the freedom of movement and the ability to live more independently.
Broadview was able to contribute to changing the lives of Army SGT David Mayer and Marine Corporal Travis Greene. Both SGT Mayer and Corporal Greene unfortunately received tragic injuries during their second and third deployments. Because of this, their homes became unmanageable for their new wheelchairs. With the help of Homes for Our Troops and major contributors like Broadview, their homes were redesigned to accomodate them.
The first veteran that Broadview helped was Army SGT David Mayer. SGT Mayer was on his second deployment in Iraq when his convoy was struck by an explosive, causing his legs to be severely injured by shrapnel. Mayer fortunately made a full recovery and is able to pursue his dream of owning his own business. To learn more about SGT Mayer's story click on the link below.
The second veteran that Broadview helped was Marine Corporal Travis Greene. Corporal Greene was on his third deployment in Iraq when he lost both of his legs in an IED blast. Greene was helping fellow commrades when they where blindsided by another bomb near their vehicle. Tragically, five marines lost limbs from this explosion. Today, Greene has overcome obstacles and complications that impaired him, and is enjoying time with his family. To learn more about Corporal Greene's story click on the link below.
