Building Homes for Heroes Homecoming Celebration for U.S. Army SSG Aaron Hale
Building Homes for Heroes is proud to announce a homecoming celebration to welcome Army Staff Sergeant Aaron Hale to his new home at 73 Pelican Bay Drive in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida on Saturday, April 6 at 10:30 a.m.
Joining in the celebration will be high-ranking military personnel, members of the construction team, local dignitaries, community members, corporate sponsors, civic organizations, friends and family, etc.
In December of 2011, Staff Sergeant Hale, an EOD technician, was severely injured in Afghanistan when an improvised explosive device (IED) detonated. Every bone in SSG Hale’s face was broken, he suffered severe burns, and was left completely blind. He served a tour in Iraq and two tours in Afghanistan. SSG Hale’s unit completed 1,100 counter-IED missions, destroying more than 20,000 pounds of enemy explosives. SSG Hale, a Purple Heart recipient, estimates he disabled as many as 50 explosive devices during his last tour in Afghanistan.
SSG Hale, his wife, Kelly, and their four children, Sheldon, Bailey, McKenzie, and Cameron will be moving into a beautiful, newly renovated, mortgage-free home. The home has been modified by award-winning general contracting company Randy Wise Homes, Inc. specifically to meet SSG Hale’s needs.
