Loomis, Calif. — A special ground breaking ceremony took place this month in Loomis, Calif., to officially kick-start the construction of a new home for CPL Joshua Hotaling, sponsored by Homes for our Troops (HFOT).

Cpl. Hotaling, a mine sweeper, was working to clear a compound for his battalion during his first deployment to Afghanistan on May 13, 2011, when he suffered the traumatic amputations of both of his legs and severe hand injuries in an IED blast.

Working with materials supplied by Armstrong, the exclusive flooring partner for HFOT, retailer Gold River Flooring will provide the flooring labor and installation for the new home.

Meridith Krekelberg, Gold River Flooring America owner, said, “We are proud to contribute to this most commendable goal of providing veterans and their families with home ownership, and we encourage the public to support a vital, invaluable project that helps our military rebuild their lives.”

Tanya Evangelista, Armstrong Field Service Representative also was onsite. A portion of the sale from Armstrong’s American Scrape hardwood collection fund the HFOT project.
