PINE, COLO./ MARCH 22, 2019 (STL.News)
American Dream Mortgage (ADM), a division of Finance of America Mortgage LLC, joined Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) in kicking off the construction of the home being built for Sean Carroll and his family. This HFOT Community Kickoff occurred on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at Elk Creek Elementary School in Pine, Colorado. The ceremony included an escort and speeches by the builder, key partners, HFOT President/CEO Brigadier General Tom Landwermeyer, HFOT home recipient Army Staff Sergeant Matt Keil and Sean Carroll. Finance of America Cares provided a check for $25,000 for this project along with future labor by the staff of ADM’s local offices.
Marine Lance Corporal Sean Carroll was injured on March 25, 2004 in Ramadi, Iraq while on patrol with Echo Company, 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines by an improvised explosive device. The injuries he sustained include the loss of his right leg, amputation of his left thumb and index finger as well as burns over 60 percent of his body. With all that, Sean has a love for life and enjoys spending time in the outdoors, camping, playing guitar and looking forward to studying solar energy. Sean is now medically retired and will be enjoying his new home with fiancée’, Jasmine, and their three children.
“It was great that American Dream Mortgage could be part of this Community Kickoff event for the Carroll Family. We are thrilled to be entrenched in the community and with people that are so deserving. It’s the perfect match. We look forward to continuing this journey with the Volunteer Day and Key Ceremony in the months to come”, said Rob Ripe, Sales Manager of American Dream Mortgage.
