Corporal John Eichenberger grew up in the Kansas City area. After
working in the restaurant industry for a brief time, he wanted to do
something different with his life and serve his country, so in 2007 he
enlisted in the Army.
While in the Army, John was stationed at
Ft. Drum, N.Y., and was deployed to Afghanistan. In Afghanistan, John
performed regular patrols, securing areas. During a two-day mission,
walking through a region in Afghanistan, John suffered injuries that
eventually led to an amputation.
John and his wife Kristen
currently live in Peoria, Ariz. with their two sons. They have family
and friends in the Overland Park, Kan. area, and they would like to move
back to the area. This is why Operation Homefront and Wells Fargo have
selected John to receive a mortgage-free home in Overland Park.
new home puts the family just five minutes from where John grew up. It
will provide financial stability for the family, and allow them a place
to settle down as the family hopes to grow in the future.
