Jason Hallett, Homes For Our Troops, Windsor; Colorado

January 31st, Saturday morning it was 37 degrees.  I drove from south Denver to Windsor, Colorado to attend the Key Ceremony for Jason and Rachel Hallett.  Only to arrive minutes before a convoy of Patriot Guard motorcycle escort, First Responders and Police from the town of Windsor.

As the convoy approached the house the street was filled with supporters, and veterans. The air was filled with excitement.

An honor guard of U.S. Navy Sea Cadets was part of the opening ceremony.  Local dignitaries and sponsors shared opening remarks about how an idea flourished into reality.  The builders, who donated materials, and labor are integral along with land donated. While other sponsors supplied the fixtures for the kitchen, bathroom and washer/dryer appliances.

Today, I will present pictures of Jason and Rachel, their house, and their Celebration cake. In the days to come, I will present a short video of the convoy arriving, the speeches and Jason raising the American flag near the front of his home.

My purpose is to support veterans like the Hallett’s, the challenges they must address while they move on with their lives.  Never have I been so impressed and inspired by a young man who has lost so much (both his legs and arm from an IED in Afghanistan – 2010).  Rachel is a wonderful woman that LOVES her husband.

I thought of them and mention how strong their LOVE is for each other. About the LOVE we have and support for them. They are blessed in ways that none of us can imagine. God Bless them…

Veterans come together

About pleiku1970

My service at Pleiku, 1970 is significient because of the Cambodian Incursion. Close proximity to exit routes from the Ho Chi Minh Trail and the "Tri-Border area of Laos,Cambodia and Vietnam. This Air Force assignment was different than most, because of the isolation.
