Last week in Phoenix, AZ, Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation collaborated with the American Warrior Initiative (AWI) to host a “Boot Camp” event and honor a local U.S. veteran. At the event, over 500 real estate agents received training to educate them on working with the home purchase needs of active duty and military veterans.
Dominic Martinez, a wounded Purple Heart recipient suffering from PTSD, was presented with a check for funds to purchase a truck that is capable of hauling wheelchairs and other necessary equipment for others with no transportation. Martinez works with the Honor House in an effort to help other wounded veterans and will be able to use the truck to help veterans go to doctor’s appointments or come to events.
Louise Thaxton, director of Fairway’s American Warrior Initiative and the Military Mortgage Specialist Division commented,
“AWI and Fairway are grateful to this veteran for his service to our nation. He is a true hero and we want to honor him for that service. Through these events we are hoping to inspire others to do whatever they can to give back to our wounded heroes,”
The American Warrior Initiative is the giving arm of Fairway. AWI seeks to ease the transition for U.S. veterans between military and civilian life. The mission of the American Warrior Initiative is to inspire, educate and give back to our military and their families.
I am proud to work for a company that does so much to honor those who sacrifice for our country. If I can help answer any questions about VA loans or any other home loan options, give me a call.
