http://www.homesforourtroops.org/kislow - Army SPC Robert J. Kislow III was only two months into his first deployment in June 2005, when he was shot five times causing multiple injuries including TBI and an injury so severe that it required the amputation of his right leg. While on combat patrols in Afghanistan near the Pakistan border, his team was on a mission to search out aggressive Taliban forces in the mountainous area. Attacked by a large group of Taliban fighters, SPC Kislow received five gunshots to his body causing multiple serious injuries...his bullet proof chest may very well have saved his life as the 2 shots that hit it did no damage, however his Kevlar helmet was punctured by a bullet leaving Rob with TBI. SPC Kislow, though injured, took over the forward marksman position for a wounded teammate and continued fighting until a medic arrived. He was carried to the top of the mountain where he was airlifted to the nearest Forward Operating Base. Later airlifted to Landstuhl, Germany and finally to Walter Reed Rob spent 29 months enduring surgeries and therapies while recuperating. His treatments continue through his local VA Hospital.

SPC Kislow enjoys hunting, fishing, and golf...anything to do with the outdoors. Presently enrolled in his third year of college, Rob is interested in auto racing and repair, having already completed automotive and business finance courses. A member of the VFW, Wounded Warriors, and Notre Dame Church, Rob hopes to one day organize sporting trips for injured veterans.

Rob is looking forward to living in a home that will not only alleviate the worries of where he will live in the future but will allow him to focus on his goals and dreams. A specially adapted home will provide Rob with a barrier-free environment where he can do just that.
