The Gold Coast Builders Association (GCBA) has embarked upon an important humanitarian project - assisting in the construction of a home in Wellington, FL for wounded, disabled Iraq veteran SFC Steven Holloway. Homes for Our Troops, a national organization, is building the home and Royal Concrete Concepts is the general contractor. Homes for our Troops, (www.homesforourtroops.org), builds homes for severely injured veterans at no cost to the veterans.
Army SFC Steven Holloway was a patrol leader on a mission to train Iraqi police when his team was rerouted to assist at the scene of a deadly IED attack in Mosul, Iraq. After radioing for a Medivac, SFC Holloway went to the aid of a severely injured soldier and was immediately hit by a sniper's bullet. The Medivac he called transported the injured soldier and SFC Holloway, too. After several surgeries, SFC Holloway was transported to Walter Reed Hospital, and eventually to the VA Hospital in Tampa. He is a paraplegic as a result of his injuries.

“GCBA members are participating in this home building project by generously contributing materials, labor or cash,” said Malcolm Gropper, GCBA Project Chairman. “It is an opportunity for the Association membership to show appreciation to the young men and women who so gallantly serve our country. These people make huge sacrifices, and too often the supreme sacrifice, so that we can enjoy the freedoms afforded to us, the citizens of the United States. This is our opportunity to pay it forward.”
