After joining the Army at 18, United States Army Sgt. 1st Class Cory Remsburg went through intense, specialized training to become an elite Army Ranger, eventually becoming the leader of his company’s heavy weapons squad. On October 1, 2009, everything took a sudden turn when his platoon hit a roadside bomb in Kandahar, Afghanistan during his tenth deployment to the Middle East. As a result, he suffered a penetrating head wound with shrapnel lodged in his brain, which left him in a coma for over three months. With dozens of surgeries, years of rehabilitation, and the support of his family, he has made a miraculous recovery. Unfortunately, the accident left Remsburg blind in his right eye, partially paralyzed on his left side.

After hearing his incredible story, Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors (JAH4WW) teamed up with Lead The Way Fund, Inc and RIDE 430 Challenge powered by the Free Wheel Foundation, among others, to help raise money to make Remsburg’s home handicap accessible.

Modifications to the home include the following: widening of all doorways, installation of all new appliances and fixtures in the bathrooms and kitchens, and new flooring. Remsburg’s new home also includes a large gym for his extensive rehab; a guest home for his live-in caregiver; an automated home control system; and a wheel-in pool for underwater rehabilitation with a therapeutic jacuzzi.

Peak One Builders & Restoration is a veteran owned and operated general contracting company which has built beautiful luxury homes in North Scottsdale, Arizona since 2002, and provides custom residential remodeling, commercial tenant improvements, along with complete property restoration services due to fire, smoke, water, mold, and hail storm damage.  The owner, Michael Christensen, has an engineering degree from Northern Illinois University and has just recently retired from the U.S. Army National Guard after 20 years of service and multiple deployments to both Iraq and Afghanistan.

 

Cory Remsburg’s new Gilbert, AZ home is just the latest renovation project that Peak One Builders & Restoration and Jared Allen’s Homes 4 Wounded Warriors have completed together.  Joshua Bullis was the foundation’s first Arizona veteran to receive a new handicapped accessible home from Jared Allen in 2012, and Kenneth Champlin of Phoenix, AZ moved into his custom home in 2014.

Unfortunately, there are many more soldiers like Cory in need of a home which accommodates their special needs, but it is always good to hear about people like Jared Allen who can bring so many resources together to help serve those who sacrificed for our freedom.

 

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
