May 27, 2010 (FPRC) -- Army Ranger Sgt. 1st Class Steve Holloway is a seriously injured veteran who was shot by a sniper bullet in Iraq and requires a wheelchair. The Homes for Our Troops Organization recognized that Sgt. Holloway was having difficulties moving around his small townhouse and decided to build him a new house conducive to his condition.

More than 40 companies joined together in the construction project which was coordinated by the Gold Coast Builders Association. Broten Garage Door and Gate provided a Clopay garage door and LiftMaster Garage Door Operator complete with installation. Broten's VP of Sales, Ernie LaMay, describes his company's commitment to supporting injured soldiers like Sgt. Holloway, “It is because of the unselfish and patriotic dedication and sacrifice of our enlisted men and women that we continue to enjoy the freedom and prosperity of our great country. Participating in the Homes for our Troops program allows us, in a very small way, to show our thanks and appreciation to some very brave men and women.“

The home for Sgt. Holloway and his family will be completed in June, 2010. The 2,300 square foot house has wide doorways with counters, sinks, and appliances that Sgt. Holloway can use without assistance.

Homes for Our Troops is a national non-profit, non-partisan 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2004 committed to helping those who have selflessly given to our country and have returned with serious disabilities and injuries. Homes for Our Troops raises donations of money, building materials and professional labor and coordinates the building of a home that provides maximum freedom of movement and assists severely injured Servicemen and Servicewomen live more independently. Homes for Our Troops has received many honors including being named a Top Rated Charity by the charity watchdog organization the American Institute of Philanthropy.
