U.S. Bank has donated a home in Ventura, Calif. to Freedom Alliance, an organization dedicated to supporting returning veterans, that will be given to a soldier and his family on Wednesday, July 31 at 11 a.m. PT. Employees from U.S. Bank and Freedom Alliance will present the keys to the new home at 6587 Crowley Avenue in Ventura.

The veteran receiving the home is Ross Adcock, who was an automated logistical specialist, serving in the United States Army from 2005 to 2009. While deployed to Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan, Adcock was hit by an improvised explosive device that left stress fractures in his knees and back, post traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury. He is the recipient of the Army Commendation Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Afghanistan Campaign Medal with two Campaign Stars and several other awards and decorations.

Adcock grew up in California but currently lives in Fountain, Colo. with his fiancée, Laura, and her 6-year old daughter, Jaylynn. The family plans to move to their new home in August after Adcock finishes some business courses he is currently taking. He is eager to return to California to begin his post-military life.

It was through an event for wounded soldiers in Florida that he made a connection with Freedom Alliance, who told him about a home that may be available in Ventura. He completed an application and soon learned he would soon be returning to a home not far from where he lived when he enlisted.

“It’s amazing,” Adcock said. “It’s exciting, and a little bit overwhelming at the same time. You never think that something of this capacity could ever happen to you. I’ve heard of other soldiers who had this happen and thought it was a great opportunity. Now it’s happening to me and – wow. It’s amazing.”
