http://www.homesforourtroops.org/thom... - Naval Petty Officer Anthony Thompson was on his second deployment to Iraq when a suicide bomber detonated an explosive on April 20, 2007. As a result of the explosion, he suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury, an incomplete spinal cord injury and a punctured right lung. After being transported to three separate Battalion Aid Stations, and Landstuhl, Germany, Anthony was eventually airlifted to the James A. Haley VA in Tampa, which specializes in brain and spinal cord injuries; he remains there today.

Before his traumatic experience, Anthony enjoyed playing and watching football and baseball, bowling, going to the movies, and listening to music. His son, AJ, was born after his injuries. His wife, Ivonne believes that Anthony knows the support that surrounds them. She says that having a home that the family can come home to together will be a dream come true.
