Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors (JAH4WW), a 501c3 public charity, is
honored to announce the commencement of another home remodel for an
injured United States Soldier.
JAH4WW is a non-profit organization created for the sole purpose of raising
money to build or modify the homes of America’s injured Military Veterans so
that they are handicap accessible and comfortable. Jared Allen of the Minnesota
Vikings formed the organization in 2009 after he returned home from his USO
Tour to U.S. Military Bases in the Middle East.
JAH4WW has chosen the Phoenix, Arizona native PFC. Joshua Bullis as the next
recipient for home renovations.
In April 2010, Bullis deployed to the Kandahar province in southern Afghanistan
with the 595th Sapper Company, 2nd Engineer Battalion. As combat engineers,
Bullis and the other Soldiers in the unit were responsible for constructing roads
and bridges and clearing routes, which made it possible for other troops to travel
throughout the region. While on a routine foot patrol through an Afghan village,
PFC. Joshua Bullis stepped on a buried improvised explosive device (IED). As a
result of the blast, both of his legs were amputated above his knee, as was his
left arm above the elbow.
PFC. Joshua Bullis will need a complete home remodel which includes all new
flooring for wheelchair accessibility, ramps in every entrance, custom bathrooms
and kitchen, wider doors and hallways, alterations to the garage to allow easy
access from his custom vehicle, and an outdoor patio.
