Second wounded veteran receives new home from CUs
WOODBURY, Minn. (9/2/08)--In the culmination of a project that kicked off in Minnesota nine months ago, Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R), the Credit Union National Association and state credit union leagues yesterday gave Sgt. Marcus Kuboy the keys to his new house in Woodbury, Minn.

This home is specially-adapted to meet the unique needs of Sgt. Kuboy, who was injured while serving in Iraq. Homes for Our Troops, the Minnesota Credit Union Network, the Republican National Convention staff and National Journal constructed the house for Sgt. Kuboy since the groundbreaking in April. A nationwide fundraising effort among state credit union leagues, individual credit unions and credit union system partners including Co-Op Financial Services and the Corporate Credit Union Network raised over $350,000 for the Sgt. Travis Strong and Kuboy homes. CUNA and National Journal also worked with Homes for Our Troops and the Democratic National Convention Committee on a companion project for a veteran’s home in conjunction with the Democratic National Convention. The keys for the Denver home were presented on Aug. 28 during the Democratic National Convention.
