A veteran of Iraq who lost both of his legs in an IED attack in Iraq is living in an accessible home in Fredericksburg, Va., thanks to a couple of charities.
Over the summer, Homes for Our Troops gave Sgt. Jude Recendez and his wife, Kristine, a home well beyond ADA compliance. It was one of more than 100 mortgage-free homes the non-profit provided for wounded veterans.
Donations of land, building materials, and labor as well as contributions from the PGA charity Birdies for the Brave, helped make it possible.
Birdies for the Brave is holding a golf event on Oct. 24 at TPC Potomac.
