selfless efforts to protect his troops
BREVARD COUNTY • PALM BAY, FLORIDA — It was a dream come true for U.S. Army Retired, Sergeant Israel Matos and his wife, Terisa, when they received a home donated by Military Warriors Support Foundation, in partnership with Bank of America, on March 17 in Palm Bay.
A Purple Heart and National Defense Service Medal recipient, Sergeant Matos served in the Marine Corps. He moved up in the ranks quickly and trained more than 8,000 Marines.
In his selfless efforts to protect his troops from a suicide bomber, Sergeant Matos was severely injured and had to return home.
He and his wife plan to adopt children with the belief of providing the same chance at a good life that Sergeant Matos received when his family adopted him.
Bank of America and Military Warriors Support Foundation are honored to award Sergeant Matos and his family the gift of homeownership.
DONATED NEARLY 1,000 HOMES
As part of Bank of America’s efforts to help revitalize communities and support the housing needs of those who have served and sacrificed for our nation, Bank of America, in partnership with nonprofit organizations, has donated nearly 1,000 homes to military veterans and first responders over the past three years.
This donation is made possible through a partnership with Military Warriors Support Foundation, which works with financial institutions such as Bank of America to support its Homes4WoundedHeroes and Homes4GoldStars program.
