Homes for Our Troops

Homes for Our Troops

The Balzer & Associates, Inc. New River Valley Office has had the honor and privilege of working with Massachusetts based Homes for Our Troops and Highlander Construction & Development of Radford, VA to provide a new home for Marine Sgt. Jeremy Austin and his family.  Sgt. Austin, a Purple Heart recipient, served our Country bravely in Afghanistan and was on his fifth deployment when he lost both of his legs in an April 2009 IED attack.  The new home, located in Pulaski County, will be completely accessible for Sgt. Austin and will provide plenty of growing space for his family.  Homes for Our Troops is a non-profit organization that coordinates the home building process and raises money to build homes for severely injured Veterans and their family.  Homes that are provided by Homes for Our Troops are given at no cost to the Veterans.  Balzer and Associates, Inc. provided site selection and evaluation services, topographical survey services and construction stakeout services for the project.  Balzer and Associates, Inc. expresses its sincere appreciation to Sgt. Austin and all of our men and women in uniform for their service to our Country and for providing the freedom under which we all live.
