Integrity Roofing and Painting teamed up with Homes for Our Troops to put a roof over the head of one of our disabled military heroes.

I have had to rely on other people to help me with most things; in my new home I will be able to be more independent. Homes for Our Troops and their volunteers and donors depict the True American Spirit! Thank you!

Teaming with the national non-profit organization ‘Homes for Our Troops’, the Colorado Springs Roofers at Integrity Roofing and Painting, donated 7 hours of labor to build a free roof for Army Corporal Nick Orchowski.

The owner of Integrity Roofing and Painting - Jerry Fristoe, as well as eight other employees, met at Orchowski’s new home site on Sunday, May 13th, to join many other companies and individual volunteers in the effort of building a home that is able to accommodate the special needs of Orchowski.

In Friday’s Opening Ceremony, Orchowski thanked all the companies and volunteers involved stating, “I have had to rely on other people to help me with most things; in my new home I will be able to be more independent. Homes for Our Troops and their volunteers and donors depict the True American Spirit! Thank you!”

CPL Nick Orchowski became a quadriplegic after being thrown from the gunner’s hatch of a vehicle that was attacked by insurgents while in Baghdad, Iraq in May 2004. He suffered fractures of C4, C5, and C6 vertebrae which left him immediately paralyzed. After multiple surgeries, Orchowski’s spinal cord has been moved back into place, leaving him with the diagnosis of Incomplete Quadriplegia. Orchowski now faces complications of a seizure disorder and using leg and arm braces to move. There is no medical way of knowing if he will be fully paralyzed again in the future.

Pictures and videos from the build can be found at the Integrity Roofing and Painting Website.
