SFC Charles Armstead
Army SFC Charles Armstead was on his third deployment when he suffered serious injuries including a hemipelvectomy; the loss of his right leg up to his pelvis, one of the rarest of lower extremity amputations. While at his outpost in Hamman Al Alil, Iraq on May 2, 2009, SFC Armstead did not know that an Iraqi insurgent had already killed two soldiers while infiltrating the outpost and had severely wounded the gate guard when he went to investigate a noise coming from the gate area. As SFC Armstead came upon the scene he was shot in the stomach leaving him with internal injuries and shattering his right hip, while also causing extensive nerve and spinal damage.
Upon being medevaced to a field hospital, SFC Armstead underwent his first amputation surgery. Later airlifted to Landstuhl, Germany, a further amputation surgery was required, removing his right leg at the pelvis. Upon being stabilized, SFC Armstead was airlifted to Walter Reed Army Medical Center where he spent more than 6 months recovering before he was able to be transferred closer to home to Brook Army Medical Center in San Antonio. SFC Armstead continues to be treated at the Center for the Intrepid at Fort Sam Houston, undergoing therapies to help in his recovery.
Originally from Needville, Texas, SFC Armstead enjoys spending time with his wife, Tonia and their three daughters; Ashley, Amber and Amauri. An active sportsman Chuck enjoys wheelchair basketball, hand-cycling and fishing. He hopes to one day earn a degree as a teacher or counselor.
When asked if there was anything he would like to say to those who have made this specially adapted home possible SFC Armstead stated, "I would like to thank everyone for their support. The assistance from Homes for Our Troops will give me back my independence... I will be able to get around my home without assistance. In my living situation now I am confined to a couple of rooms in the house because we have a two story home... a home from HFOT will eliminate that problem... it will be a life-changing experience for both me and my family"
