The last two Saturdays were very busy for the partners of the Repairs for Heroes (RFH) program. Partners Blount County Habitat for Humanity and Maryville Amvets Post 22 completed 2 wheel chair ramps for one disabled veterans and one disabled Vietnam War Veteran widow.
These programs would not have been possible without the generosity and labor of the members of the Maryville Amvets Post 22. We also want to thank Joe Rainwater for his construction leader and project management.

RFH team are now conducting after action reports after the completion of the project. First lessons learned: We have a GREAT team! Several improvements in the construction process were identified and will be implemented in the future project including quality control.
Special recognition to Lowe’s for providing a substantial discount for Mrs. Watson ramp.
VTVT and Amvets Post 22 will be introducing the RFH program at the upcoming Amvets Tennessee convention in June 2018. The convention will be held at the Glenstone Lodge in Gatlinburg TN from June 7th to the 10th.
