Mission Accomplished on Dec. 21, 2009

On Oct. 1, 2007, Army Staff Sergeant Michael Minard of Grand Junction, Colo., was on his third tour in Iraq when he was severely injured. He was out on recon with the 2nd Styker Calvary Regiment north of Sadr City in Baghdad when they were hit by a roadside bomb.

The blast resulted in the loss of both SSG Minard’s legs. After surgeries and rehab, he medically retired from the military.

Homes For Our Troops is proud to have presented this home to SSG Mike Minard and his family on Dec. 21, 2009. Thank you to everyone who supported this project.
