· U.S. Army Specialist Philip Olson was an army specialist for 4 years, 10 months as an infantryman and a gunner, serving two tours of duties in Afghanistan. Philip was shot three times during a firefight and was ejected from a vehicle from an IED Blast. He has Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), PTSD, and leg and spine issues as a result. He has lost several soldiers and his Captain. Philip was awarded numerous accommodations. He is currently a student working towards a degree in Mechanical Design. His wife, Chenoah, is a student at Colorado University studying for a business degree and is on the President's list. They have an 8-year-old son named Jonah. They are a young, well-grounded family with a strong work ethic and Philip's service, achievements, and injuries make him an excellent recipient for an Operation FINALLY HOME house, as he will be able to continue with his education without worrying about a home.
