A home is more than a just roof over our heads - it can be a sanctuary for service members, especially combat veterans.
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 16, 2014
About Operation: Renovation:
51,809 service members have been wounded in action since 2001. That is 51,809 brave combat veterans who are dealing with a life-long and life-altering injury, and only the substandard healthcare and inadequate compensation provided by our government to rely on. Operation Renovation is a support initiative organized by a local San Diego based construction company, REIG Construction, with a mission to honor, celebrate, and change the lives of local military heroes through passionate and purposed home renovations. When asked why he is so passionate about this project, volunteer official spokesperson and decorated combat hero, Ryan Yahner, said:
“I have always been passionate about helping my fellow service members. I was a Sergeant with the Marines for 3 years, and my number one job was to take care of my junior Marines. Now that I’m retired, this project is a way for me to get back into that roll. A home is more than a just roof over our heads - it can be a sanctuary for service members, especially combat veterans. Unfortunately many can’t afford to keep up with repairs, especially when injury requires special modifications. REIG has been helping wounded warriors for several years now, and this project is another way they are showing their gratitude for our service members the best way they know how - through a home renovation. I am proud to volunteer my time for this cause and help my fellow service members again.”

This initiative will allow Active Duty and Veterans who own a home in San Diego County, a chance to be the recipient of a complete home renovation, including modifications needed to help support living with an injury. Applications will be accepted starting June 1, 2014, through July 31, 2014. All current and former service members who own a home are encouraged to apply, and family/friends are encouraged to nominate a military member in need using the same online application form located at http://www.reigoperationrenovation.com/the-application/. The long term vision is to turn this into an annually recurring project, offering assistance to multiple military members every year, and expanding into other communities across the country.
