A disabled Arkansas U.S. Army veteran will become the recipient of a custom-built home from the nonprofit organization Homes for our Troops (HFOT).
Sgt. Andrew Butterworth and his family will receive a brand-new home in Pea Ridge, after the sergeant lost his right leg during a 2004 Iraq deployment, FOX24 reported.
Two rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) struck Butterworth’s patrol vehicle, damaging his leg beyond repair and giving him a traumatic brain injury, an HFOT press release stated.
The veteran’s wife, Julia, was born missing a leg, so both of them struggle with physical challenges associated with caring for their three children while living in an RV.
According to the organization, the Butterworths’ new home will include “specially adapted” features such as automatic doors
