Homes for Heroes is pleased to introduce our Affiliate, Hal Blades!
“I feel that I know a little bit about Heroes because in many ways I have always been surrounded by them. Before I was old enough to become a volunteer fireman I knew that I wanted to follow in my father’s footsteps who was an active volunteer for over 60 years. I joined the Fire/EMS Service and worked along side him at the age of 16 and for most of the next 30 years. After college I worked in the hospital setting closely with another set of heroes before joining the Delaware State Police where I completed a 25 year career. During that time I also served on a local School Board with yet another type of hero. Different uniforms, but, the same ideals. I have always been willing to give to others and look forward to the Home For Heroes program to give back to those who deserve it the most.”
