Homes for our Troops and Douglas Colony Group will spend three days building a new home for a war-injured veteran.
Douglas Colony, which specializes in roofing, metals, solar and waterproofing, is donating the building materials and labor. Aaron Lovelace of Western Classic Desing LLC is the general contractor. Work on the house is scheduled to start April 30.
The home is being built in the Wild Point Subdivision in Elizabeth for Marine Lance Cpl. Kade Hinkhouse, who served in Ramadi, Iraq. In 2005, while patrolling on a late-night mission, the vehicle Hinkhouse was riding in was hit by an explosive device. The Humvee exploded and Hinkhouse was ejected, leaving him with a skull fracture, collapsed lungs and a severe leg injury.
