New Home for Injured Marine
Saturday morning, July 19, 2014 a group of us attend and
volunteered at the groundbreaking ceremony for Sgt.
Luis Remache in
Manorville. Homes for our Troops, a not for profit
organization is building a handicapped accessible home
for Sgt. Remache and his wife. Marine
Sergeant Luis Remache was three months into his third
deployment with the 1st Battalion, 5th Marines, when he
lost both of his legs and sustained elbow, stomach, and
hand damage in a firefight in Sangin, Afghanistan on
June 29, 2011. While on an overnight mission off-post, a
grenade blast and small arms fire caused the traumatic
amputations of both of Sgt Remache’s legs above the
knees, severe stomach lacerations, and severely injured
his right elbow and both hands. SCHF looks forward to
welcoming them to their new home!
