LEGACY Sponsors Five Veterans in the Homes 4 Wounded Heroes Program

LEGACY joins the Military Warriors Support Foundation in supporting our veterans.

Supply chain may be our forte here at LEGACY, but logistics alone doesn’t get the job done right. Our daily operations as an organization are governed by six core values. These values are central to everything that we do and together, they work to have a positive effect on our employees, partners and communities served. Fundamental to our success as an organization, are the core values of Making a Difference and Servant Leadership. 

  • Making a Difference : Focus on impacting the world around us.
  • Servant Leadership : Serve others to create extraordinary, sustainable relationships, leaders, and results.

As the supply chain industry continues to evolve, there is an increasing call for social responsibility—to support and give back to those communities in which we serve. This isn’t some trend—it’s here to stay, and for good reason. As an organization vested in service to others, we are proud to give back to an organization that supports the families that know, better than most, what it means to make sacrifices in service to others. For that reason, we are very humbled to work alongside the =Military Warriors Support Foundation to give back to our veterans—the men and women of our country who live and breathe the very values that we embody as an organization. Through MWSF’s Homes 4 Wounded Heroes program, LEGACY has donated the funds to assist five veterans and their families’ transition into their next step as new homeowners.

The Homes 4 Wounded Heroes Program

The Homes 4 Wounded Heroes program awards mortgage-free homes to veterans who were injured in combat in service to our country. What makes this program unique is that the giving doesn’t end once a veteran has received their new home. Through the Family and Financial Mentorship component, each family receives three years of support and guidance as they transition through homeownership. The Homes 4 Wounded Heroes is inherently sustainable; its reach will extend to others long after the original giving occurs. Veterans recognized by the organization are those that not only embody the value of service to others fighting for our country, but will continue to do so long after their terms have ended. We couldn’t be more proud to give back to our veterans in this way.

Meet U.S. Marine Corps Pfc. Robert Vardaro

On November 5th, we gathered at our Portsmouth, New Hampshire office to honor the first of the five families to be recognized by LEGACY and the Military Warriors Support Foundation. United States Marine Corps Pfc. Robert Vardaro served in the 1st Battalion, 8th Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan between October 2007 and September 2011, but was discharged after a serious injury. Pfc. Vardaro returned home to his supportive parents and his young daughter, Nevaeh, whom he has sole custody of, in Westford, Massachusetts. For his service, Pfc. Vardaro has been awarded the Combat Action Ribbon, Sea Service Ribbon (2nd award), Afghanistan Campaign Medal, Iraq Campaign Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and the NATO Medal.

Pfc. Vardaro has the goal to work as a Human Service Practitioner and to help disabled children. Now out of combat, Pfc. Vardaro’s focus is on raising his growing daughter and giving back to the local community in which he lives.

We are privileged to have this opportunity to give back to Pfc. Vardaro and four other veterans.

“The five families that we will be recognizing over the next few weeks have gone
above and beyond to demonstrate their commitment to the service of others, and
we’re so grateful to be a part of their next step as new homeowners.”

Their dedication to the service of others and to making a difference in the world is commendable. We are indebted to our vets for the sacrifices that they have made for our own safety and wellbeing, and are humbled to be part of such a life-changing experience for these five families.
