A non profit called “Homes For Our Troops” came together last weekend to help a man from Minatare
SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. (KNEP) - This organization builds adaptable custom homes for wounded veterans all throughout the United States.
Sergeant Timothy Kramer from Minatare was injured while serving in Iraq.
This left him with a traumatic brain injury which led to many other issues, including the loss of the use of his left hand and foot.
The home being built for Timothy and his family will feature more than 40 major special adaptations such as widened doorways for wheel chair access, a roll in shower, and kitchen amenities that include pull down shelving and lower counter tops.
HFOT has built 325 homes since 2004, but the home they are building for Timothy in Nebraska is personal.
Bill Ivey, Executive Director for Homes For Our Troops, says; “Tim’s home is very special to me because Tim was one of my soldiers in Iraq, and he was wounded about a week after I left Iraq. So the last time I saw him he was good to go. But then in 2006 the next time I saw him a couple of years ago when he came to conference to come into the program. So to have the opportunity to repay a debt since he took care of me when I was in Iraq, now I can take care of him and that’s really special to me.”
