Yesterday we had the great honor of presenting US Army Staff Sgt. Anthony (Tony) Feaster and his family with the keys to their brand new Niblock Home.
Operation Finally Home is a national, non-profit organization dedicated to building homes for wounded, ill, or injured veterans, surviving spouses and their families. They bring together homebuilders, the military, and communities to build custom mortgage-free homes for our heroes.
No one is more deserving of this home than Tony Feaster and his family. Tony joined the military in 1998. He had many positions during his time in the Army, and his awards include two Purple Hearts, six Army Commendation Medals, nine Army Achievement Medals, four Army Good Conduct Medals, two National Defense Service Medals, a War on Terrorism Service Medal, and an induction into the Order of St. George.
During a deployment to Afghanistan, Tony received sniper fire to his nose as well as extensive injuries caused by an IED explosion. As a result of combat, he also now suffers from traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder, degenerative disc disease of the cervical spine and chronic spine strain.
Tony has been married to his wife Tamika, for 14 years, with whom he has three children: Sarah, Johnathan, and LeeAndrea. Tony is currently readjusting to civilian life and has plans to finish his associate degree and pursue a bachelor’s degree in psychology, with a concentration in military resilience.
