Mission Accomplished July 18, 2009
SSgt John Jones
Fort Collins, CO
SSgt John P. Jones was serving in Iraq with the 1st Battalion/ 7th Marines when he was severely injured on January 3, 2005.
John was in the 7th vehicle of a 35-vehicle convoy when it hit a double-stacked anti-tank mine. The mine that exploded under his hummer launched him 25 feet through the top of the vehicle.
John was living in a rented house with his wife Amber and their three children. With the help of volunteer, Homes for Our Troops built them a home that will accommodate his needs and enable him and his family to concentrate on recovery and their future.
Homes for Our Troops was proud to turn over the keys to this house to the Jones Family on July 18, 2009! Thank you to everyone who donated supplies, labor, and money to this project. Without people like you, none of this would've been possible!
