JE Dunn kicked off the July 4th holiday with 100 patriotic Americans celebrating the service and sacrifice of one of our true American Heroes. JE Dunn and Merriman Architects joined Helping a Hero to break ground on a new home for CPT Sam Brown, USA (Ret.) and his wife, Amy. This home for the Browns is being dedicated in honor of former Navy Seal Chris Kyle, who was unfortunately murdered earlier this year while helping another soldier overcome PTSD. We were fortunate to have perfect weather for the groundbreaking, with a mild cool breeze. Rare for Texas in July! It was perfect for Sam, a burn victim who is no longer able to regulate his temperature. A special thanks to Congressman Pete Sessions, Miss Texas USA Ali Nugent and American Idol finalist Celena Rae for making the day extra special for this family.
Helping A Hero is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, non-partisan organization that enables all Americans to say "Thank you for your service" to our wounded heroes in a tangible way. They build specially adapted homes for severely injured military personnel and their families and adapt these homes for the specific injuries and challenges of our wounded heroes.
