Hawthorne, NV (KRNV & MyNews4.com)-- It's been months in the making and Nevada Veteran, Sergeant Tim Hall is home at last.
It was a day and a gift that he will never forget. Army Sergeant Tim Hall was honored and rewarded for his service in Afghanistan.
Hall was six months into his first deployment when he was severely injured in a mortar attack. As a result, Hall lost both of his legs, at just 20 years old.
Now, nearly three years after the attack Hall was welcomed into his brand new home in Hawthorne, just two miles from his family.
Friends, family, veterans and everyone who made this home possible were there to join Hall as he toured his new abode.
The Nevada Military Support Alliance and the Homes for Our Troops Organization and many volunteers,were the driving force behind Hall's new lease on life.
"I get a lot of energy from being able to get up in front of a crowd like this, that are so like-minded and so Patriotic and like I said in my comments these people get it, they understand what's going on they understand the sacrifice and how important it is for us to reach out and support soldiers such as Tim Hall," said Chairman of the Alliance, Perry Di Loreto.
Joe brown, the Vice Chairman of the Alliance says he is very proud to be a part of this effort.
Seven months after being presented with a $250,000 check to build the home, Hall says he's ready to start living an independent life.
