Groundbreaking Shovel Challenge

Advantis challenged its six branches to decorate the shovels that will be used at the official groundbreaking for Marine Sergeant Josh Sweeney. Homes for Our Troops is building a specially adapted home for Sgt Sweeney and will break ground on Saturday, April 26 in Hillsboro, Oregon. Sgt Sweeney was on his second deployment when he lost both of his legs and suffered severe arm injuries after a bomb exploded beneath him in NowZad, Afghanistan in October 28, 2009. Advantis is proud to support the event with volunteers, and of course, the shovels decorated by our talented staff.
