Homes for Troops - SFC Roy Mitchell - Carthage, NY

From Homes for Our Troops...

SFC Roy Mitchell was serving in Afghanistan when was severely injured on November 23, 2003. He was riding in a regular Humvee that was not equipped with up-armored modifications with 11 other soldiers and embedded reporters. On the day before Thanksgiving in 2003, on his second deployment to Afghanistan, the vehicle he was riding in hit an anti-tank mine along the Pakistani border.

The insurgents had armed the device to detonate on the third strike, and Mitchell was in the third vehicle to run over it.

Right now, Roy currently lives on post housing with his wife and children. Help us build them a home that will accommodate his needs and enable him and his family to concentrate on recovery and their future.
