“I first heard Sgt First Class Cory Remsburg’s incredible story in 2013 and knew that he was someone we needed to assist. Through current supporters of my charity, Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors, we were able to reach out to The Army Ranger Lead the Way Fund who had been helping Remsburg out since his injury in 2009. We knew right away that this was a perfect partnership between our two organizations and together we could make a true positive impact in the life of another hero. We are so excited to be handing the keys over to Cory today. This new home is a symbol of, but cannot begin to express, our gratitude for his service and sacrifice.” – Jared Allen
