Peak One Builders Begin Remodeling Army Ranger Remsburg’s Home

Peak One BuildersOur Nation’s heroes often give their lives and livelihood to protect the freedom that we all enjoy on a daily basis. When we can supply some time, materials and a little bit of sweat to give something back to help them live a higher quality of life in their time of need, the rewards are bigger than any large construction contract can provide. The team at Peak One Builders is proud to announce the official groundbreaking for Army Ranger Sgt. First Class Cory Remsburg and his new home remodeling project allowing him to continue to recover from a 2009 injury that nearly claimed his life.

Jared Allen’s Homes For Wounded Warriors Remodeling Home For Sgt. First Class Cory Remsburg

Sgt. First Class Remsburg joined the Army when he was 18 years old and went through the rigorous, specialized training to eventually become an elite Army Ranger, deploying to Iraq and Afghanistan 10 times. He spent a total of 39 months in combat and made leader of his company’s heavy weapons squad. Among many honors, Remsburg has been awarded the Purple Heart, the National Defense Service Medal, the Bronze Star, and was honored during this year’s State of the Union Presidential Address.

However, on October 1st, 2009, Sgt. First Class Remsburg and his platoon came upon a roadside bomb in Kandahar, Afghanistan. The explosion left shrapnel lodged in his brain. After years of rehabilitation centers and hospitals, Remsburg now lives at home with a full-time caregiver in Phoenix, Arizona.  He is now able to walk and speak, although he still struggles on his left side and is blind in his right eye.

Like many disabled veterans returning home, the family realized that the house would require some extensive remodeling to accommodate Cory and his full-time caregiver. Remodeling can provide easy and safe access to general at-home activities that many of us take for granted on a daily basis. The partnership between Peak One Builders and Jared Allen’s Home for Wounded Warriors foundation stepped up to the challenge.

For several years, the Peak One Builders’ family, led by our founder Mike Christensen, has actively supported our returning veterans. A former US Army soldier himself, Mr. Christensen takes proactive measures to ensure when soldiers return home to the Phoenix Valley, they are well taken care of by a local community they fought for daily overseas. With this commitment, Peak One Builders has partnered with NFL Football Player Jared Allen and his Homes for Wounded Warriors to provide a complete home remodeling for Sgt. First Class Cory Remsburg.

JAH4WW is a non-profit organization created for the sole purpose of raising money to build or modify homes for America’s injured military veterans making them handicap accessible and comfortable.  Jared Allen of the Minnesota Vikings formed the organization in 2009 after he returned home from his USO Tour to U.S. Military Bases in the Middle East.

The project for Sgt. First Class Remsburg officially broke ground on July 11th, 2014. The entire team at Peak One Builders feels it is a privilege and honor to be partners in helping Sgt. First Class Remsburg live a higher quality of life back home here in Phoenix. For more information about Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors project, please take the time to visit them online @
