Operation Homefront made national news once again as CNN covered our five-home giveaway in Atlanta. The news organization focused on recipient Sgt. Ricardo Bailey and his family. Bailey lived in New York City and experienced Sept. 11, 2001 firsthand and enlisted in the Army at the age of 36. After serving in Afghanistan, he came home and started suffering from the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and encountered many difficulties as a result. See the video and hear more about his story.
The giveaway occurred thanks to our friends at United Rentals and Wells Fargo who helped us present the mortgage-free homes to five very special veteran families. The homes were given away as part of our Homes on the Homefront program.
