CTI2 Chad M. Kueser

Spring Branch, TX

After serving three years with the Army as an Infantryman, Chad enlisted in the Navy after the 9/11 attacks as a Cryptologic Technician.

On September 11, 2005, during his first combat deployment, Chad was serving with the 42nd Infantry Division, as part of a Cryptologic Support Team in Tikrit, Iraq when he was hit during a mortar attack. This resulted in the loss of both of his legs above the knee and other injuries.

Now, Chad works as an analyst for the Department of Defense. He enjoys spending time with his wife Beshka and their two college-age children, Riley and Logan. Although Chad has an active lifestyle, living in a non-adapted home makes daily life challenging, especially as he ages. His current home is multilevel, limiting his mobility.

A specially adapted custom home will give Chad a safe place to rest and recover after a long day of work. An avid cook, he looks forward to adaptations such as pull-down shelving, roll under counters, and an accessible stove top, all features that will allow him to safely cook meals for his family.

Chad enjoys hunting with fellow HFOT Veterans and through them, he has witnessed firsthand the impact of an HFOT home. The financial freedom of a donated home will allow him to spend more time with his family and on his hobbies. “Once we get settled in our home, I’d like to find an old car or truck to restore after I retire,” he says.

Chad is choosing to build his home in Texas where he currently lives.

Chad would like HFOT donors and supporters to know they are changing lives. “Homes For Our Troops is a life changing opportunity. This home will make all the difference for me in the coming years.”
