Every day, thousands of American military men and women risk their lives overseas protecting our freedom and way of life. While most of them come back from their deployment safely, there are many who are not so lucky. A 2014 Congressional Budget Report found that 2.6 percent of American troops wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan suffered a major limb amputation. Even more of our soldiers suffer from partial or full paralysis or traumatic brain injury.
Homes for Our Troops is a nonprofit organization that builds specially adapted, mortgage-free homes nationwide for these injured veterans. These homes help restore some of the freedom and independence our veterans sacrificed while defending our country, and enable them to focus on their family, recovery, and rebuilding their lives.
AWM.com has committed to sharing a percentage of all revenue with this amazing organization. Now, every time you share an AWM story with your friends on Facebook, you’re helping build a home for one of these heroes. With your help, AWM.com has already donated over $8,000 to Homes for Our Troops.
