The article below tells the story, but there is a lot more to building a pool and backyard for a Wounded Warrior who served our country so unselfishly.
As a young man of 26, Brian has not come to realize how his sacrifices have positively impacted the lives of those he comes into contact with. My trivial problems and ailments pale to those of Brian's.
Since starting this project, Sgt. Brian Jergens, U.S. Army Ret. and his wife Jennifer have become good friends.
When I'm in town, I do not mind receiving text messages "Starbucks?," where I work on my laptop and he reads and hangs out. I know that he just wants to get out of the house. Sitting around all day can drive one stir crazy.
I've tried to break the monotony of his days, by challenging him to take his on-line hunter's safety exam, taking him flying and introducing him to friends who's schedules allow them to just "hang out with him." Though he still has lingering medical issues and daily challenges, he continues to persevere.
Our desire is to provide the Jergens' with a project that will provide some daily distractions and a source of exercise.
