Homes For Our Troops
We recently paired up with a great organization called "Homes for Our Troops" to construct a new home for a Ft. Hood soldier who was wounded in Iraq. His name is Army SFC Charles Armstead. Charles 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.

This home was created specifically for Mr. Armstead with everything wheelchair accessible. David King Concrete Construction donated free of charge all the man power and equipment to complete the foundation and all driveways and sidewalks. We hope you will donate anything you can to help in the effort to give back to a soldier who has given everything to protect our country.
