Mission Accomplished on Jan. 23, 2010

Army SGT Cameron Crouch was deployed to Iraq as part of A Co., 1/178th Infantry when he was severely injured in an accident on August 23, 2007.

While working as part of a platoon overseeing witnesses and detainees at the Central Criminal Court in Baghdad, a rooftop caved-in, plunging SGT Crouch seventy feet to the ground. As a result of landing on his feet on a marble floor, Cameron sustained devastating injuries to both of his legs requiring nearly 20 surgeries including the amputation of both legs below the knee. After first being treated in Baghdad, SGT Crouch was airlifted to Landstuhl, Germany before being sent to Walter Reed.

His hospitalization continued at the Hines Veterans Hospital in Chicago until he was moved to Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas. An avid sportsman, SGT Crouch enjoys basketball and golf as well as skeet and pistol shooting.

Homes For Our Troops is proud to have presented a home to Cameron and Christy on Jan. 23, 2010. A home that they can call their own and that will allow him to move freely and become more independent.

In June 2010, Cameron married his wife, Christy. Since then, they have adopted a dog named Carlos and had a son named Jared in December 2013. Cameron’s current goals are to be a good father and husband. He would also like to open a sportsman range for shooting and training people to shoot.
