Quick Review: Last summer started another American Heroes Home Build; a ‘from the raw ground up’ project powered by the steam of our amazing volunteers and sponsors. While it had a few weather delays, the project is now in the final stretch and coming together beautifully. The home is being built for a wounded Marine, his wife, and two daughters in Oriental, NC.  We are extremely grateful for all who have given of themselves and/or their resources to help make this happen, especially the Marines from Cherry Point who often lent some muscle, personality and gardening skills!

Check back soon for the compete review, pictures and updates!

039With the official ground-breaking ceremony held Friday, August 23, 2013 the American Heroes Home Build project is well underway. But there is a long way to go to completion which is hopeful for mid-April 2015. It’s a short time-frame but with your help in many ways, we can make this happen sooner than later.

 

A QUICK REVIEW OF THE PROJECT:


Thanks to the generous owners of Nature’s Run Subdivision, MMIA is able to build a home for a veteran with disabilities. Nature’s Run Subdivision is located on upper Dawson Creek in Oriental, North Carolina. The subdivision has a nature trail, community dock, and boatslips. Nature’s Run is located minutes from Minnesott Beach ferry and a short drive to historic New Bern.

MMIA’s Operation Warrior Golf had a great day Monday, July 22 at Fort Bragg, presenting 50 sets of “gently used golf clubs” to wounded warriors. Most of the recipients had completed basic golf instruction at Stryker Golf Club on the army base. MMIA representatives Jim Breece, Roger White and Dan Marusa made the presentations. Tony Pugh, Outreach Coordinator of the Fort Bragg Wounded Warriors Transition Battalion, made this event possible.

 

“Each trooper introduced themselves to us,” reports Breece, a member of the MMIA Board of Directors. “Roger, Dan and I were choked up with gratitude and praise for the soldiers we met. The soldiers were very forthcoming about themselves and most appreciative of MMIA’s donation of golf clubs. We talked with the soldiers about their golf instruction, about the clubs that would fit their ‘future’ games and mostly about themselves and how they and their families were doing. The day was very humbling for us. These young men and some older soldiers made a profound impression on us with their upbeat attitude facing their hardships and their love of country and sincere desire to learn to play golf.”

 

Breece, who spearheads Operation Warrior Golf, also reports, “We mentioned MMIA Tee Off for the Troops Golf Classic on Veteran’s Day and asked Tony Pugh to coordinate with Mike Dorman to have some troops join us that day.

 

This was Operation Warrior Golf’s first presentation at Fort Bragg. Additional presentations are planned there as well as at Marine Corp Base Camp Lejeune. In addition to the 50 sets presented at Fort Bragg, MMIA also gave more than 25 sets of clubs to send to Special Forces wounded warrior units throughout the United States.
