Purple Heart Homes – Improving Veterans’ Lives – Guests John Gallina & Dale Beatty
Joy of Living with Laleh Radio Show
We invite you to join Joy of Living with Laleh and her two guests, John Gallina and Dale Beatty, two amazing U.S. Purple Heart Recipient Veterans as they share their journey in empowering Veterans of all era in living a better life.
SPC Gallina and SGT Beatty were both in the North Carolina National Guard and responded to the call of duty from the President of the United States to defend our country against terrorism by serving in Operation Iraqi Freedom.
On November 15, 2004, their vehicle struck two anti-tank mines that detonated leaving Beatty a double amputee below the knees and Gallina with severe back injuries, Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and Post Traumatic Stress (PTS).
Their journey together is one of friendship, service, courage and leadership. Their shared experiences in the National Guard created a strong sense of community and a deep passion to give back and make a difference in the lives of Service Connected Disabled Veterans.
As Dale Beatty and John Gallina reintegrated into their communities, they were humbled by the number of people that would come up to them to thank them for their service and sacrifice. They were trained to not leave a soldier behind on the battlefield, and as two combat wounded Iraq Veterans they remain committed to not leaving them behind at home.
Recognizing an unmet need, they decided to reach across the generational divide to provide housing solutions for qualified Service Connected Disabled Veterans, and together they co-founded Purple Heart Homes in 2008.
