Sam Ross

Army Private First Class Sam Ross, a combat engineer with the 82nd Airborne Division, was wounded on May 18, 2003, while disposing of munitions that were wounding and killing Iraqi children in a area near Baghdad. More than two years ago that explosion took his sight, his left leg, part of his hearing and his military career.

Homes For Our Troops awarded PFC Ross a specially adapted home on April 15, 2006.
