Jeremy Stengel

Marine Corporal Jeremy Stengel lost his left leg and sustained severe muscle and nerve damage to his right leg, when an improvised explosive device (IED) struck his vehicle while on a route-clearing mission, in Iraq on Jan. 31, 2007. What started as a typical day found Cpl Stengel and his comrades up before dawn, performing an IED sweep of the main supply routes in the area. With his vehicle acting as the rear security, Cpl Stengel and three additional Marines were the last in the procession when they struck an IED.

Cpl Stengel plays wheelchair basketball and is an avid SCUBA diver. He is a member of VFW post in his hometown, Waterford, Wis.

Jeremy is grateful for those who are helped make his life easier. “For a group of people to do this for returning injured Veterans, you are true Americans. Thank you.”

Homes For Our Troops is proud to have presented this home to Jeremy on May 21, 2011.
