Local combat veteran Shaun Meadows and his family will begin their Memorial Day Weekend celebration early, moving into their new custom-built home. Operation FINALLY HOME, local award-winning builder Goodall Homes and Nashville-based LP Building Products constructed the home after a groundbreaking event on Veterans Day 2011.

The home was dedicated to Pamela Page, the late wife of United States Air Force Chief Master Sergeant (retired), Stephen Page. Chief Page nominated Meadows to receive the home. Bob Goodall, president and owner of award-winning builder Goodall Homes skydived in with Meadows, Chief Page and Scott Page onto the property, keys in hand.

“There’s no better way to kick of Memorial Day weekend than by recognizing the sacrifices Shaun Meadows and other soldiers have made for our country,” said Daniel Vargas, a retired U.S. Air Force Technical Sergeant who runs Operation FINALLY HOME. “Operation FINALLY HOME depends on the support of organizations like Goodall Homes and LP Building Products. We are thankful to all who supported our effort to provide a home for Shaun and his family.”

Meadows is a 31-year-old Afghanistan combat veteran. While deployed in Afghanistan in 2008, he was injured by an IED and became a bi-lateral above-knee amputee. Meadows retired from the Air Force in January 2011 and moved to Tennessee. Married to Nicole Meadows, the couple has a six-year-old son, Trevor.

Goodall Homes led the build from start to finish. Local businesses from across Middle Tennessee stepped in to provide the materials and labor for the project. “Handing the much-deserved keys to a custom-made home to this deserving family is a moving experience,” said Keith Porterfield, chief operating officer. “We’re so thankful for all of the local businesses and contractors who helped make this build happen.”
