JEFFERSON, Mo. (4/9/10)--U.S. Sen. Kit Bond (R-Mo.) and U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (R-Mo.) have signed on to become honorary Build Brigade Members, through the Homes For Our Troops (HFOT) program, according to the Missouri Credit Union Association.
The brigade is building a home this weekend Staff Sgt. Robert Canine through the Homes for Our Troops program. Luetkemeyer is expected to attend the Build Brigade opening ceremony at 8:30 a.m. today. Bond staffer Sarah Barfield is scheduled to present a letter for support from the senator. Both lawmakers have sons who served overseas (The Missouri difference April 7). The event begins today and continues through Sunday. Volunteers are still needed to help during the event, the association said. HFOT is a nonprofit organization supported by credit unions that builds specially adapted homes for severely injured service members. The Credit Union National Association and other credit union leagues have participated in several projects.
