About Dale Beatty
In 2004, Staff Sergeant Dale Beatty deployed with the North Carolina National Guard to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom. In 2004 while on a patrol route that was littered with highly active insurgent operations, the vehicle Beatty was riding in was ripped apart by anti-tank mines. The explosion was so severe that it left Beatty a double amputee below the knees. Thanks to support from the Iredell Homes Builders Association and many members from the local community in and around Statesville, NC, a specially adapted barrier free home was built for Beatty and his family, with Beatty serving as general contractor. As a result of all the support from his community – Dale Beatty and his battle buddy John Gallina wanted to help other Service Connected Disabled Veterans with their housing solutions. Together they co-founded Purple Heart Homes with money from their disability checks to help Veterans and their caregivers from all eras. Learn more at http://PurpleHeartHomesUSA.org.
