PORTSMOUTH, N.H. — Finding and paying for a home is a major hurdle U.S. Marine Corps veteran Robert Vardaro will not face after serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, thanks to a program organized by the Military Warriors Support Foundation (MWSF) and supported by Portsmouth, NH based LEGACY Supply Chain Services. Vardaro and his three-year-old daughter Nevaeh were at LEGACY headquarters in Portsmouth on November 5, where company executives joined MWSF representatives to officially hand over the key to the family's new home located in New England.
The Military Warriors Homes 4 Wounded Heroes program has been providing 100-percent mortgage-free homes throughout the country since 2007 for American heroes in recognition for their incredible service and sacrifice. Vardaro is a native of Westford, Massachusetts. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps from 2007 to 2011 and was wounded by improvised explosive devices (IEDs) on three separate occasions in September of 2010.
“Making a difference in our communities is a cornerstone value of LEGACY'S culture,” explained CEO Ron Cain. “Military heroes like Robert take these values to a level that is humbling and inspiring, and the LEGACY family is proud to support his family through the Homes 4 Wounded Heroes program.”
