The Story

Mr. Bill Fly is a 99 year old WWII Veteran that served in the Army Air Forces in the European theater. Mr. Fly and his wife bought their home in 1972 and have lived there ever since. He said his home has never flooded before so he doesn't carry flood insurance. Mr. Fly's wife passed away just 3 months ago so he lives in the home alone, with family nearby. Unfortunately his family lost their homes too. He wishes to live out the rest of his years in his home that he and his wife shared over the last 45 years. When we met him yesterday he said that he wished he wouldn't have lost the letters, photos and papers about his wife. This is something we can't replace but we can as a community of Patriotic Americans help him get his home back. Please help us rebuild this mans home so he can move in by his 100th birthday! Nov 13th. For being 99, he is in good health and gets around with the help of a walker. We are looking for donations and in kind donations. Please email [email protected] if you have in kind gifts that will help with the rebuild process.

Operation 100 is complete, Mr. Fly has been in his house for exactly a week and he LOVES it! He’s doing so well. Thank you to everyone who helped out! 

Our Mission isn’t over yet though. Since finishing Mr. Fly’s house we have learned of others that need help too. These WWII veterans deserve to live their final days in peace. Instead they are displaced or living in horrible living conditions like Mr. Martin because of the Hurricane. This is a picture of Mr. Martin, who was in the Army Infantry, on the front lines in Germany. He found his Army jacket in the debris pile in front of his house when he and his wife returned from the George R Brown Convention Center Shelter. They have been living in their torn up home ever since. We will rally the community to put sinks, toilets, a shower, flooring and paint back in his home. Mr.Fly hoped that we would be able to help others too, because of his story we will be able to do that. 

Thank you for your support.
