Building Hope is a first person account of Dan Wallrath, a self-described “Average Joe,” who felt an undeniable pull on heart to help a very specific and heroic group of people, providing them with custom-built mortgage-free homes. It outlines his experiences in being led to start Operation Finally Home (OFH), helping war-wounded soldiers and their families with a hand up and fresh start after returning from war. It includes two gripping first-person accounts of families struggling to transition from war to home, one from the perspective of an Army widow, and the other from a Special Forces soldier who nearly died in battle.
