A new home for Army Sergeant Justin Lansford
We are proud to partner with the Gramatica Family Foundation and Gulf Bay Builders to continue our support in helping America’s military families. This time a new home was built for injured Army veteran, Sergeant Justin Lansford, and his wife, Carol, in the Seminole Heights neighborhood in Tampa, Florida.
The former Army Sgt. is an Iraq and Afghanistan combat veteran who faced severe injuries as a result of a roadside bomb while serving in Afghanistan. Together with the Gramatica Family Foundation and Gulf Bay Builders, we supported the effort to build Justin and Carol a single story fully adapted bungalow home to meet their needs. Although Justin fully appreciates the wide door openings and even the roll-under kitchen sink, his favorite features are the deck, barbecue grill, and his spacious garage.
There is never enough recognition for the great sacrifices our military hero’s make for America. We know their service impacts their family and loved ones, too. We’re honored to be able to help Justin with this fully adapted home. It is the least we can do for a wounded veteran. Thank you Justin!
About Sergeant Justin Lansford
SSG Justin Lansford deployed to Iraq in April 2010 in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, and in February 2012 to Ghazni Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. On April 23, 2012, Justin was severely injured when a roadside bomb struck the truck from which he was machine-gunning suffering the loss of his left leg above the knee, crush injuries and nerve damage to his right leg, a ruptured spleen, damage to his liver and pancreas, two collapsed lungs, a broken back and burns to his right arm among other injuries.
Justin moved to Tampa, FL following completion of all treatments at Walter Reed to be closer to his family and support system. Justin now lives with his wife, Carol, and Gabe, his loyal Golden Retriever.
