Sergeant Smith, a father of two, is a part of the 130th Military Police Company in Millington, TN and an OIF/OEF veteran.
“We’re excited that we can honor Sergeant Smith for his service to our country by giving him and his family a new roof,” said Bill Mabry, Contractor Network Leader, Owens Corning Roofing and Asphalt. “This is exactly why we developed the Roof Deployment Project, to show our gratitude and help lessen the additional stressors that military families like the Smith’s face due to their failing roof.”
Soldiers are often away from home for long periods of time and, as a result, it can easily take a toll on their families. According to Blue Star Families’ 2014 Military Family Lifestyle Survey, nearly 40 percent of military spouses feel stressed most or all of the time, and one of the top stressors is household responsibilities.
“It is a great blessing that my family and I have been chosen as a recipient for the Roof Deployment Project,” said Sergeant Smith. “We appreciate all that Owens Corning and its Platinum Preferred contractors are doing for the military community.”
“It’s truly an honor to give back to Sergeant Smith who has sacrificed so much for us by serving our country,” said Tripp Atkinson, Owner of ContractingPRO. “The Roof Deployment Project makes a huge difference in a person’s life and knowing we were a part of that project is an indescribable feeling.”
