2009 – Homes for Our Troops, a national non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2004. They are strongly committed to helping those who have selflessly given to our country and have returned home with serious disabilities and injuries since September 11, 2001. It is their duty and our honor to assist severely injured Servicemen and Servicewomen and their immediate families by raising donations of money, building materials, and professional labor and to coordinate the process of building a home that provides maximum freedom of movement and the ability to live more independently. The homes provided by Homes for Our Troops are given at NO COST to the Veterans we serve.
The New Jersey Wireless Association donated $2,000 to Homes for Our Troops for U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Michael Minard, Union Beach, NJ, in 2009. SSG. Minard lost both of his legs in a roadside bombing while on a tour of duty just north of Sadr City, Baghdad, Iraq.
