FORT WAYNE, Ind. (21Alive) – Homes for Wounded Warriors is helping soldiers who have been seriously wounded in combat live a better life when they return home.

On Saturday, American Legion Post 241 came to the help of U.S. Army specialist Matthew Moeller of Fort Wayne.

Moeller was a combat engineer and was seriously injured in Afghanistan by a roadside bomb. He is now disabled and cannot find a job since the injury decreased a large portion of his mobility.

The fundraiser included a silent auction, raffles, and a construction auction in hopes of helping out this veteran and his family.

“All the money goes to the veteran. This is our first attempt at really building a home for this person and our expectation is that we'll be able to fund at least half of the home, said Commander David Miller with American Legion Post 241.

For more information on how you can help, contact the homes for wounded warriors at (260) 437-1353.
