Missouri CUs sign up for new troops home project
ST. LOUIS, Mo. (10/23/08)--The Missouri Credit Union Association (MCUA) has signed an agreement for credit unions to team up with Homes for Our Troops (HFOT)--a nonprofit group that builds specially adapted homes for severely disabled members of the military. The agreement also includes a provision to build homes for Missouri veterans in Branson and St. Louis (The Missouri Difference Oct. 22). Specialist Scott West, a Branson resident, lost his legs below the knee in Iraq when an improvised explosive device (IED) exploded beneath the humvee he was driving. West spotted the IED and jerked the vehicle to the right so it would explode underneath him, rather than his fellow soldiers, the association said. John Gonsalves, HFOT founder and president, will meet with West in St. Louis Tuesday and help introduce the Home for Our Troops effort in Missouri. MCUA encouraged credit unions are encouraged to take part and learn more about the effort. Credit unions were instrumental in building homes for two wounded veterans in Colorado and Minnesota during the national political party conventions this past summer.
