Ret. Sgt. Allen Megginson received a new home for him and his wife, Amy, on Friday, Feb. 28. Bank of America donated the home in partnership with the Military Warriors Support Foundation, which chose the Iraq War vet as its recipient. It’s one of nine Triad homes the bank’s donated to wounded vets. It comes after a decade of hardships for Megginson, dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome and a variety of war injuries, including a traumatic brain injury he only recently got Veterans Affairs to acknowledge after a decade of attempting to get disability benefits for it. The couple, which had been living in rural Virginia and fallen on hard time financially, were grateful for the home. They said they hope to reach out to help other local veterans, and perhaps even start a new local veterans’ non-profit.
