Peter Rooney

Army SGT 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 home for Peter in western Massachusetts to specifically address the day to day challenges he faced while living in traditional housing. Thank you to everyone who donated supplies, labor, and money to this project. Without people like you, none of this would’ve been possible.
