SGT Timothy Hall, from Hawthorne, NV received his specially adapted home on March 30th, 2013. He wants to thank past supporters and donors for giving him the gift of freedom and independence. “I am happy to pass his thanks along,” and remind people of how important it is to contribute to the effort to help our veterans that have sacrificed so much for us.
Here is a piece of this warriors story.
Army SGT Tim Hall was 6 months into his 1st deployment when he lost both of his legs as the result of a mortar attack while at his Forward Operating Base in the Logar Province of Afghanistan on June 10, 2010. Standing in line at the PX (Post Exchange) at FOB Shank, SGT Hall was waiting to purchase some items when a mortar attack threw him into the air, critically injuring the 20 year old from Hawthorne, Nevada.
A Communications Signal Support Systems Specialist, SGT Hall’s legs required amputation the following day due to the severity of his injuries; his right leg amputated at the hip and his left leg amputated at the thigh. Initially treated at Bagram Air Base, Tim was airlifted to Landstuhl, Germany where he spent nearly a week being stabilized for transfer to Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, DC on June 18, 2010.
SGT Hall has endured more than sixty surgeries to date, and received ongoing treatment at the newly renamed Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.
SGT Hall would like to thank all of the donors and volunteers who made his specially adapted home from Homes for Our Troops a reality. He is now living in a specially-adapted home that provides him with a safe environment that is based specifically around his adaptive needs. He says,
“I cannot say thank you enough for everything that is being done for me. Thank you for caring enough to make a difference.”
