After spending time in Southern California recovering from severe head trauma received while trying to disarm an IED during his third deployment to Iraq and Afghanistan, Sgt. Jesse James and his family will be moving to Advance this week.
James is a wounded Marine Corps combat engineer who fell in love with the Advance community during a March visit. He and his wife, Nicole, and two children will be moving into a brand new home built by Habitat for Humanity Boone County and the Homes for Wounded Warriors project. It is the first Habitat home built in Indiana expressly for a wounded veteran returning from combat, said Steve Furste, HHBC executive director.
