Last Thursday, with the generous donation of the home by Bank of America, and awarded by the Military Warriors Support Foundation we welcomed U.S. Army SSG, (Ret.) Isaac Rios into his mortgage-free home in Jacksonville, Florida.
Visit this link for news video coverage of the event:
SSG Rios served as an Infantryman for 18 years and was in 1-64 Armor, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division while deployed in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom III. He was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal, an Army Commendation Medal and a Combat Infantry Badge for coming under hostile fire in an infantry unit that participated in ground combat operations.
Our Executive Director, Ken Eakes reminds us,
“Together we can accomplish what we can only individually dream.”
This statement comes to life every time we partner together with others to change the lives of our veterans, one home at a time.
Welcome home SSG Rios!
