Here is the complete textual content of Keith’s nomination, written by Cindy Gunia:
Keith served 20 years within the Military. Was a single father for many of his service and was medically retired resulting from accidents he sustained In Afghanistan resulting from an I.E.D explosion. He has selflessly sacrificed his life for his daughters, our Nation and all of us and he would do it once more in a break up second. He struggles with medical points resulting from his service.
He’s the kindest individual you might meet and by no means asks for something.
Roughly 5 years in the past he bought his first dwelling to cool down and set up roots after a few years of getting to relocate. The home is a fixer higher which he didn’t notice the extent of the work that must be completed. As with every part in the home the roof is a bit older and in want of changing. I imagine it’s leaking in spots and never even positive if the cross bracing/rafters are completed proper.
The gutters are coming free and one was changed this yr after falling off the home. He has spent a lot cash attempting to repair this place up however he’s restricted bodily and financially resulting from being medically disabled. As his buddy a number of of us have tried and try to assist sort things for him. We’ve made good strides on the within however the exterior is a complete different story. It might be a blessing if we may give one thing again to him in spite of everything he has sacrificed. I feel for as soon as he would be capable of sleep a little bit higher understanding this was off his plate.
Thanks for contemplating him for this chance!
