Jacob, Allison and the Team

 

Dear Friends:

In January, Allison and I went to Noblesville, IN for Zach and Kiley Nelson’s “Key Ceremony.”  This is the day when a veteran is presented with the keys to their new home. Cars were parked on the roadside along the entire neighborhood. We saw his parents, and hers, we saw cousins, friends, aunts and uncles, community leaders, Indiana Governor Mike Pence, Zach’s military squadron, a 4-star general and former Vice Chief of Staff of the US Army… It was a homecoming worthy of a hero. I share this with you because your support is in those walls. It’s in the foundation of that house. It’s in hardwood floors that allow a wheelchair to operate with ease. It’s in the accessible shower, sinks, toilets, and cabinets. Your support is allowing Zach to regain his independence. What an awesome privilege it was for Allison and I to be there!

This is why we support “Homes For Our Troops” — HFOT is a national non-profit 501(c)(3)organization whose mission is to build specially adapted homes for service members who have been severely injured in combat operations since September 11, 2001. All homes are built at no cost to the veteran through the generous support of people like you. There are several organizations that build homes for veterans — HFOT is the best.

Each year that we come together for a day of golf, we impact another family in a way that will change their lives forever. I am grateful to all of you who will consider teaming up with us again.
