Groundbreaking for second Home for veterans
WASHINGTON (4/29/08)—April began and ended with groundbreaking ceremonies marking the launch of homes for wounded veterans of the Iraq war, in which the Credit Union National Association (CUNA) and state credit union representatives participated. The effort is part of the "Homes for Our Troops" initiative and a project of both the Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) ,in Denver, Co., and the Republican National Convention (RNC), in St. Paul, Minn. The National Journal is also a program partner. The plan is to provide specially adapted homes for two severely wounded members of the American armed forces and their families under the auspices of the non-partisan non-profit group, Home for Our Troops. CUNA and league representatives were on hand Monday to start a home for Sgt. Marcus Kuboy. Kuboy was injured in an explosion while patrolling the outskirts of Fallujah. The completed home will be presented to Kuboy in September during the RNC meeting to name the Republican candidate for the 2008b presidential election. Earlier this month, the partner groups started the home that is to presented to wounded Iraq war veteran SSG Travis Strong and family around the 2008 DNCC. Sgt Strong lost both legs as a result of a rocket-propelled grenade attack on his Stryker vehicle.
