Main Document

"McPherson's home was donated through a partnership with Freedom Alliance and its Heroes to Homeowners program."

For the third time in 2014, U.S. Bank, in partnership with Freedom Alliance and Five Brothers, are set to donate a home to an injured United States Army veteran. At 10 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 19, Sgt. Patrick McPherson and his family will be welcomed to their new, mortgage-free home located at 5171 Fossil Butte Drive in Colorado Springs.

McPherson was born and raised in California and currently lives in Pagosa Springs, Colorado. He joined the Army Reserves in 2001 at the age of 24. McPherson's three deployments and combat-related injuries in the War on Terror have left him a permanently disabled American veteran. While stationed in Iraq, he had the difficult and dangerous assignment of transporting supply convoys from Kuwait to Baghdad, traveling with at least 150 convoys during his deployment.

McPherson was medically retired in August 2012. The severity of his injuries make it difficult for him to participate in activities he once enjoyed. McPherson and his wife, along with their two children, are looking forward to their upcoming move to Colorado Springs.

"We are really excited about this next stage in our lives," said McPherson. "The transition will allow my family to take advantage of the strong, military roots already planted in the Colorado Springs community, along with great educational opportunities for our children."

This donation derived from a partnership between U.S. Bank, Freedom Alliance and Five Brothers, a real estate management company that helped renovate the home. Several U.S. Bank officials as well as representatives from Freedom Alliance and Five Brothers will be present to welcome McPherson and his family to their new home, including:

"U.S. Bank is honored to partner with Freedom Alliance to present this home to Sgt. McPherson and his family," said Tom Naughton, regional president for U.S. Bank in Southern Colorado. "It will be a wonderful Thanksgiving for the McPherson family. U.S. Bank is a strong supporter of the U.S. military and its veterans. U.S. Bank currently employs approximately 2,000 current and former members of the U.S. military, and has been recognized nationally as a top employer for veterans. We are proud to donate homes to wounded veterans where and when we can."

In addition to partnering with military service organizations such as Freedom Alliance, U.S. Bank supports Guard and Reserve employees through its Proud to Serve program, a company-wide initiative focused on hiring and supporting service members and their families. U.S. Bank hired more than 1,100 veterans between 2012 and 2013. U.S. Bank also received the Secretary of Defense Employer Support Freedom Award in 2013 for its exceptional support of Guard and Reserve employees, including generous paid time-off policies for veterans and military family members.

McPherson's home was donated through a partnership with Freedom Alliance and its Heroes to Homeowners program. "We are honored to support and care for our nation's returning veterans and their families through our national program. The home donations allow us to assist in healing by strengthening our veterans, including Sgt. McPherson, as they transition into their new civilian lives," said Freedom Alliance President Tom Kilgannon.
