Homes for our Troops / Kids for our Troops (28, 29)

Found a good article in the 11 SEP issue of American Profile about:

Homes for our Troops

a nonprofit started by John Gonsalves to build homes for injured troops that let them lead a normal life even with disabilities. This is especially true for young troops who have come home from the war with permanent loss of function, and need to continue their lives without letting that disability get in the way of family and fun.

Associated with the site is:

Kids for our Troops

a site dedicated to giving kids ideas on how they can show their support for troops and start projects in their own hometowns.
