American Hero and Family Surprised with Mortgage-Free Home
By: Belman Homes
National non-profit organization, Operation FINALLY HOME, along with local builder Belman Homes and Metropolitan Builders Association task force members surprised U.S. Army Sergeant First Class Tyson Cole and his family with the news they are receiving a mortgage-free home on September 15, 2018. The announcement was followed by a special groundbreaking ceremony.
"As we begin our fifth build, we want to thank Tyson for the countless sacrifices he and his family have made for our country," said David Belman, President of Belman Homes, Inc. "The Coles are an extremely deserving family and this home will give them the stability they need to prosper in their transition to civilian life."
"The response from the community and building trades during our last project with Operation FINALLY HOME was so fantastic, that we are building two additional homes in the Menomonee Falls area, including the Cole's home," Belman added. "So many companies and individuals have stepped up to help such a worthy cause and this project would not be possible without their generosity and support. We are extremely grateful for all of the contributions and are ready to continue the mission of Operation FINALLY HOME in Menomonee Falls."

About U.S. Army Sergeant Tyson Cole
Tyson was first deployed to Korea, where he climbed ranks by putting his soul into his craft. During his second deployment, he spent 18 months in Iraq where he served as the Brigade Commander's personal security officer. His job was to ensure there were no imminent safety threats such as enemy contact, IEDs or small arms fire. While on a mission to meet an Iraqi general, Tyson and his unit heard a massive explosion. When they arrived at the scene, they saw a significant loss of American lives. This, along with other graphic wartime experiences, left Tyson with significant Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Despite these incidents, Tyson continued his service until 2012. In addition to PTSD, Tyson was diagnosed with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) after being knocked unconscious by a 60mm mortar while in Baghdad. This resulted in memory loss, migraines and decreased abilities in reading and comprehension. Tyson was awarded several honors during his service including the Combat Infantryman Badge, Army Commendation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, Army Good Conduct Medal, and others.
