Homes for Our Troops (HFOT), a national non-profit organization dedicated to serving the nation’s most severely injured veterans, had selected local home builder, Arlington Construction Management as its Building Partner to coordinate the construction of a specially adapted home for Sergeant Marcus Dandrea in Haymarket, Virginia.
While serving his country in Afghanistan, Sergeant Marcus Dandrea sustained severe injuries including amputations of both legs above the knee. Sergeant Marcus Dandrea now lives in his new home in Haymarket, Virginia with his children. The specially adapted home will help this hero regain some of the freedom and independence he lost due to his injuries. The home will be provided mortgage-free, allowing him to focus on his recovery and rebuilding his life.
As HFOT’s building partner, Arlington Construction Management has served as the General Contractor for the project and was in charge of permitting. In conjunction with Homes for Our Troops, the company reached out to their best suppliers and subcontractors, enlisting them to donate their materials and labor for the project. The home is wheelchair accessible and features over 40 state-of-the-art adaptations including a roll-in shower, pull-down cabinets and a roll-under sink in the kitchen. The new home was delivered to Sergeant Dandrea on July 9, 2016, the 217th home delivered by HFOT.
“We are honored to help inspire the building community to come together and help give back to Sergeant Marcus Dandrea, who has sacrificed so much for us,” says Chad Hackmann, owner of Arlington Construction Management.
Chad Hackmann, owner of Arlington Construction Management, has been helping folks build and remodel their homes with a transparent approach to the process in Arlington and throughout the surrounding metro area for over 10 years constantly striving to provide a better way to build and remodel.
Homes for Our Troops is a national non-profit 501(c) 3 organization based in Taunton, Mass. founded in 2004. Its mission is to build specially adapted homes for severely injured veterans across the nation to enable them to rebuild their lives. Since 2004, HFOT has built over 180 homes for service members who have been severely injured in combat operations since September 11, 2001. All homes are built mortgage-free to the veteran through the generous support of individuals, foundations, and corporate contributors. Homes for Our Troops has received a four star rating from Charity Navigator.

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3-7.
Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.
Led by professional teaching artists, campers learn acting, movement, and technical theater skills through the lens of Physical Theater. Physical Theater incorporates acting, movement, dance, mime, and acrobatics. If you’ve seen a Cirque du Soleil performance, you’ll find many similarities.
Most first-time campers are new to the performing arts, and teaching artists are well-versed in engaging students at all levels. Parents and campers report that one of the best parts of Synetic is the community, with many families returning year after year because they feel a strong sense of belonging.
