Eagle Mountain Historical Events

2007, September
The community came out to honor a local war hero, Sergeant First Class Gordon Ewell, as the recipient of the "Home for a Hero" project. He is a 22 year veteran of the military who was seriously injured while serving in Iraq. He, his wife and their six children will receive a new home through a local builder, Alta Vista Homes, a non-profit group in Massachusetts, Homes for Our Troops and Mike's Guardian Eagle Foundation, a local non-profit organization. Sgt Ewell's job while in Iraq was a route clearance expert. He tracked Improvised Ex;losive Devices (IEDs). He actually wrote the training manual for tracking IEDs. He has a number of residuals from his injuries received while serving his country including traumatic brain injury, hearing loss, partial blindness, and difficulty with coordination, walking and standing. Nevertheless, he still maintains an optimistic and grateful attitude. The Ewell family will have a new home built - hopefully finished by Christmas - that will accommodate his disabilities. Many donations have already been received for the family.
