Wounded Warrior Transitional Housing
A Story of Success
Kevin joined the Marines in 2008. Soon after, he was deployed to Afghanistan where he was wounded in combat in 2010. After enduring several years of inpatient treatment and therapy at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, he was ready to leave the base. Kevin applied for our transitional housing program and joined the Vinson Hall family in spring of 2014. Early that summer, he flew to Washington State to pick up his service dog, Hammish, who became a resident too.
While living here, Kevin developed friendships with many of the traditional Vinson Hall residents as he remained on active duty. A committed member of the United States Marine Corps, his goal was to reenlist. For two years, Kevin lived at Vinson Hall while his duties moved from Walter Reed to Quantico. During that time, he could be found in the lobby sipping coffee with friends, or at the Bistro in the evenings sharing stories of his escapades such as his participation in the 2014 Invictus Games. His hard work and perseverance certainly paid off when Sergeant Hoffman reenlisted in the United States Marine Corps in the spring of 2016. Soon after, he moved to quarters closer to his assignment- successfully transitioning to the next chapter of his life.
Kevin remains a friend of the Foundation and Vinson Hall Retirement Community, and visits when he has a chance. Navy Marine Coast Guard Residence Foundation is proud to have played a small part in Sergeant Hoffman's healing. We are grateful for the service and sacrifice he gave, and continues to give, for our country.
