HUMILITY AND HEROISM - That's what the OATH students witnessed first-hand when SFC Joseph Cruz was a special guest at their meeting on Thursday, Jan. 21. Detailing his journey in the U.S Army, Mr. Cruz shared his experiences during two combat tours in Vietnam where he was awarded the Purple Heart, multiple deployments in Germany, and the heart-wrenching details of a training accident that changed his life forever. It was a powerful and inspirational evening of courage, gentle strength, resiliency, determination, and humility - - true traits of a hero. Operation All The Way Home is grateful for the service of Joseph Cruz and honored to have the opportunity to work on his behalf and repay in some small measure the debt we owe to one who has sacrificed so much for all of us.

On Oct. 15, 2015 the Antelope Valley was struck by a sudden and violent storm, referred to by the National Weather Service as a "1,000-year rain event." Dropping an estimated 3 inches of rain in a span of 30 minutes, the storm caused severe flooding and mudslides that left many homes catastrophically damaged. One such home is owned by disabled Vietnam combat veteran, Joseph Cruz. SFC Cruz's handicapped-accessible home was left in need of major repairs. Operation All The Way Home's mission is to make the Cruz house a home again. Repairs include new drywall, interior paint, new flooring throughout the home, and the construction of a block wall to provide extra protection from flooding in the future.
