Building a Home for a Veteran:
You can’t have the land of the free without a home for the Brave.
Thank you to everyone who helped make WDHA & WMTR’s Hammer for Heroes 2019 a success! Volunteers from businesses and the community converged on the Beyer Ford dealership in Morristown on May 2 and 3 to frame walls for the future home of veteran Daniel Pope, his wife and three daughters. They will reside at our Main Street project in Roxbury Township.
Radio stations WDHA and WMTR not only broadcast live from the Morristown build site each day, but their staff also picked up hammers and built wall panels themselves.
Daniel Pope was in the first ground unit to enter Iraq in the Iraq War in 2003. He was just 17 years old when he enlisted in the U.S. Marine Corps with permission of a parental waiver. Daniel’s first day of boot camp was 9/11, and he graduated on Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. The former Secretary of Defense, General James Mattis, led his unit’s charge into Iraq.
