Mission Accomplished on September 27, 2008
SSG Matthew Keil
Army Staff Sgt. Matthew Keil volunteered for his first tour in Iraq because he was single and had hoped to take the place of someone who was either married or had kids. SSG Keil returned unscathed from that tour. He then got married and was sent back as the kind of person that he had volunteered to take the place of.
On his second tour of duty the 25-year-old soldier was hit by sniper fire near Ramadi, Iraq. The injury left him a quadriplegic, though he has regained some use of his left arm. Homes for Our Troops is proud to build this Hero a home adapted to his needs.
Tracy says on her blog, "I know that we are both so very lucky to have each other, and equally lucky to have all of you helping support us. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, you don’t know what this means to us."
Homes for Our Troops is proud to have presented this beautiful home to Matt and Tracy Keil on September 27, 2008. A home that he can call his own and that will allow him to move freely and become more independent.
