SGT PETER ROONEY
Mission Accomplished on March 13, 2010
Army Sergeant Peter Rooney lost both legs above the knee when the vehicle he was riding in hit a roadside bomb on April 16, 2007, in Ramadi, Iraq. Rooney joined the Army in 2001, just after his 18th birthday. He met his wife Susanne while stationed in Germany.
Homes For Our Troops built a specially adapted custom home for Peter in Western Massachusetts to specifically address the daily challenges he faced while living in traditional housing. Thank you to everyone who supported the building of Peter’s home. Without people like you, none of this would’ve been possible.
