In March, Gary Crosswhite and several Meridian Concrete, Inc. employees donated labor to pour the concrete slab for a new house that is being built by Homes for Our Troops in Wellington, NV.

Homes for Our Troops, a national non-profit organization that was founded in 2004, is committed to helping veterans that have served our country and returned home with serious disabilities.  They assist severely injured Servicemen and Servicewomen and their immediate families by raising donations of money, building materials and professional labor to coordinate the process of building a home that accommodates the injured veteran.

Marine Sgt. Kenneth “Dylan” Gray and his family will live in the specially adapted home once it is completed.  He was left a double amputee after his HUMVEE drove over an anti-tank mine in Iraq.  The home will allow Sgt. Gray to access all areas of his home independently while in his wheelchair.

“It’s a great project to be involved in and very rewarding to know we are helping our Servicemen and Servicewomen who have given so much to our country” said Gary.  For more information on Homes For Our Troops, visit
