BUILDING HOMES FOR HEROES® TO GIFT MORTGAGE-FREE HOME TO VETERAN

Celebration to be held to welcome home Silver Star recipient to Destin, Florida

Destin, Florida – Building Homes for Heroes® is proud to announce a homecoming celebration to welcome US Air Force Master Sergeant Joseph Deslauriers, his wife Lisa, and their son Cameron to their beautiful, mortgage-free home at 1337 Emerald Bay Dr. Destin, Florida 32514 on Saturday, October 25th at 10:00 am.

In September of 2011, MSgt. Deslauriers, a 1st Special Operations Civil Engineer Squadron explosive ordnance disposal technician, was mounted in a mine resistance vehicle conducting a post blast assessment of an IED explosion in Afghanistan. In an effort to get a closer look at the damage done by the IED blast, MSgt. Deslauriers dismounted and unfortunately stepped on a secondary mine. The explosion that ensued resulted in MSgt. Deslauriers losing both legs above the knee, and his left arm at the elbow.

The home was built by award-winning general contractor, Randy Wise Homes, Inc. of Niceville, Florida. "We worked closely with the family to ensure that we met all of their needs,” said Randy Wise, President and Owner of Randy Wise Homes, Inc. "Joe is an American hero who has made an incredible sacrifice by defending our country. We wanted to let the world know that we are taking care of our veterans."
