“JPMorgan Chase has long supported our service members and veterans.

They selected Operation Homefront as a strategic housing partner and under Rusty Smallwood’s visionary leadership, we have made the dream of home ownership a reality for well over 400 deserving military families. All agree, Rusty’s remarkable work in support of our “Homes on the Homefront” program has allowed us to help our military families thrive, not simply struggle to get by, in the communities they have worked so hard to protect.” said retired Brig. Gen. John I. Pray, Jr., president & CEO of Operation Homefront (far right).
