Wharton, New Jersey

Mission Accomplished on December 27, 2007!

While serving with the 64th Military Police, CO 720th MP Battalion in September 2005, SPC James Benoit was severely wounded by a roadside bomb attack in Iraq that left him confined to a wheelchair with the long-term prognosis that he may never walk again without assistance.

SPC Benoit spent six months at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, undergoing 77 operations to repair wounds that he sustained. With a buildable lot that Jimmy purchased from the borough of Wharton, Homes for Our Troops, along with the efforts of the mayor and councilmen of the borough in which Jimmy grew up, worked with local donors, businesses and contractors to build Jimmy a home to meet his needs.

A big Thank You to everyone who helped make the Benoit’s Home a reality. Homes for Our Troops awarded a home to Jimmy in December 2007.
