Following the invasion of Iraq in 2003, U.S. Army Sergeant Daniel Cappo felt called to serve his country.
Daniel enlisted in the Army as a vehicle mechanic in 2004 and honorably served for nearly nine years. With deployments to both Iraq and Afghanistan, Daniel sustained injuries from multiple combat-related events. In addition to enduring an IED blast, Daniel was left with permanent disabilities following two separate incidents of HUMVEEs falling on him while he was repairing them. Daniel medically retired in 2012.
As a result of his combat, Daniel suffers from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), a back injury, migraines and photosensitivity.
For his service, he received an Army Commendation Medal with Valor Device, Afghanistan Campaign Medal with Campaign Star and an Iraq Campaign Medal with two Campaign Stars along with several other medals and commendations.
As Daniel’s injuries grew more severe, his wife Jamie entered a program through the VA to become his primary caregiver and continues overseeing Daniel’s care. They currently live in Pennsylvania with their two sons and enjoy watching movies, playing video games and boating as a family. Daniel is currently studying Psychology, and Jamie hopes to someday open a salon focused on giving back to veterans and the homeless.
Operation FINALLY HOME along with Belman Homes are thrilled to provide the Cappo family with a custom-built, mortgage-free home in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.
