SGT Jeffrey Guerin was 2 days short of his 22nd birthday when his life exploded before his eyes. His vehicle was ambushed and destroyed by an IED while conducting a security patrol. Fellow members of the small patrol aggressively fought the Taliban attackers, secured the area and began medical treatment for those injured.
Jeffrey, an invaluable member of the medical platoon, remembers almost nothing about that day. The impact of the explosion broke both his legs and shrapnel from the IED blinded him completely in his left eye and left minimal vision in his right. Jeff made his last visit to Walter Reed Medical Center on March 17th, 2006.
Homes for Our Troops is proud to have presented this beautiful home to Jeff Guerin on October 25, 2008. A home that he can call his own and that will allow him to move freely and become more independent. Thank you to everyone who helped make this possible!
