Join the Morris Family! We will be at the ground breaking on August 5th, for SGT Christian Valle's new home. We hope to see you there, if you can make it let us know, and we'll look for ya! On Oct. 23, 2005, Army SGT Cristian Valle, an Infantryman, was on patrol with the 100th Battalion, 442nd Infantry Regiment, performing a vehicle checkpoint in Balad, Iraq when a mortar round with a grenade attached was thrown out the window of a passing vehicle. The grenade exploded a few feet away from SGT Valle, tossing him into the air. He lost one of his legs immediately and the other was so severely damaged it was eventually amputated. He also sustained a pelvic fracture, burns and significant blood loss. After SGT Valle was tossed into the air and landed on the ground, through the dust and smoke, the first thing that caught his eye was his wedding ring and he says that is what pulled him through.

We attended a ground breaking event for USMC Cpl. Jon Schumacher with our oldest daughters high school club she founded for helping disabled veterans around our region. With influence from our own organization here, she named her club, The Patriot Tigers. Her club was the first of its kind in our school district, and her club was used as a model by other schools to start their own high school clubs to benefit disabled veterans. In this image she and her club members are smiling with our hero Cpl. Schumacher. Our daughter is to the corporals immediate right "cane hand". She led this club from her Sophomore year through her Senior year in high school, and her activities touched many, from the school staff, to her own members, to the veterans she and her club served. Our younger daughter now is currently a sophomore in the same high school, she is involved heavily in The Patriot Tigers, and she will be taking over the reigns next fall as President of The Patriot Tigers. The Morris family is very proud of both our daughters. If you would like to help build a home in your area, please go to our interactive Homes For Our Troops Map.
