Wounded veteran gets new, custom built home in Sanford
Sgt. Jackie Irving not only returned from a tour of duty he has also returned to a brand new custom home for his family.
Retired from the Army, Sgt, Jackie Irving did tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan and in 2012, he suffered serious injuries from the blast of an explosive device which resulted in a brain injury. He is also still dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Operation Finally Home is a non-profit that builds mortgage-free homes for wounded and disabled veterans across the country and they say the Irvings are exactly what they look for when choosing a family to help.
Many local vendors stepped up to help make Sgt. Irving’s dream of owning a home come true. FAS was honored to be involved and to provide the exterior coating for the home that is both durable and energy efficient.
It was such an honor to be a part of this! Thank you to the Monsters in the Morning for asking us to get involved!
