http://www.homesforourtroops.org/wesley - Army CPL Wesley Leon-Barrientos was deployed to Iraq in December 2007 when he lost both of his legs when the truck he was riding in rolled over a pressure plated bomb causing an explosion to rip through the vehicle. Wesley lost his left leg and right foot in the blast and suffered severe calf injuries as well as a broken jaw. After being airlifted by a Blackhawk Chopper, CPL Leon-Barrientos fell unconscious and awoke two days later in Germany where he was stabilized for transport to Walter Reed where he remains today.
Before his injuries, CPL Leon-Barrientos enjoyed all types of contact sports and practiced Martial Arts. He also loved to hunt. He is looking forward to the day when he is able to live with his wife and baby daughter in a barrier-free home that will provide him with some of the freedom and independence he has lost. Please consider helping Homes for Our Troops provide CPL Wesley Leon-Barrientos and his family with a home that will accommodate his needs and enable them to concentrate on his recovery and their future.
