CLAYTON – For all the passionate interest groups interested only in tearing things down, Operation Coming Home remains focused on building up the very people that sacrifice in defense of American liberty. On July 1, the non-profit handed the keys to a brand new ‘Hero Home’ to wounded combat veteran US Marine Corporal Jason Nichols and his family.
“Nichols suffered a traumatic brain injury from an IED blast in April 2011 while deployed overseas. He along with his wife and five children will move into Hero Home 21 through Operation Coming Home and the Triangle-based nonprofit U.S. Veterans Corps.
“The family has never seen the home,” said Andrew Ladner, president of Operation Coming Home. “This has happened with COVID, normally the family works through the entire process of the build but they have not been to the house whatsoever.”
Past home dedications are normally filled with lots of fanfare including military flyovers and state dignitaries on hand. But, due to social distancing, Hero Home 21 will be dedicated to the Nichols family with only a few people on hand but it will all be broadcast virtually. […]”
