Warrior Outreach volunteers, friends and partners show off their work for Korean war hero Master Sergeant (Retired) Vincent Farrell during a ceremony celebrating the completion of home repairs July 31, 2013. The 316th CAV BDE from Fort Benning provided the muscle for the project; doing yard work, painting, cutting down trees and even repairing a basketball goal for MSG Farrell’s great grand children. Home Depot provided paint, lumber, flowers, electrical work and fixtures, and cleaning supplies and also rolled their sleeves up and pitched in. Zaxby’s provided free food for everyone. MSG Farrell was awarded the Silver Star and Bronze Star with “V” Device for valor for his heroic actions during the Korean War. UPDATE — Vincent Farrell died Jan. 6, 2014. He was inducted into the Georgia Military Veterans Hall of Fame on November 1, 2014.
Warrior Outreach and House of Heroes partnered to help MS Louise Miller, her husband, a military veteran, S.N. Miller passed away 22 years ago. Volunteers from Fort Benning’s 63rd Engineer Company removed debris, cut trees and did numerous other repairs. MS Miller said."I appreciate what you have done for me, I feel I have not been forgotten." Special thanks goes to Home Depot in Phenix City for their support to this project.
Warrior Outreach Volunteers Offer Hope And Help To Widow Of Vet
Thursday June 27 is national Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness Day and in honor of this special day, members of the Warrior Outreach Organization stepped-in to help renovate the home of a veteran's widow.
Judy Hammacks lost her veteran husband two years ago. Since then, her mobile home grew weak, and her home began to break. It wasn't until retired Command Sergeant Major Samuel Rhodes, the founder and the president of Warrior Outreach, decided to help repair her house about a month and a half ago.
