On Sept. 11, 2001, the world of U.S. Army Sgt. Jason Castille and his family changed forever. Already enlisted in the Army, Castille began preparing for to go to war.
In March 2003, Castille left for Iraq and was one of the first on the ground there. Throughout his time in the Army, Castille was wounded several times. Jason’s final injury was to his right arm and shoulder and occurred outside of Fallujah, Iraq when local combatants who had infiltrated the compound of the Iraqi Fire Department were killing locals and US service personnel. After this battle, Jason was flown out of Iraq for immediate medical treatment. In addition to a crushed right shoulder, Jason suffers from PTSD, TBI, severe nerve damage to his left leg and trauma induced tumors in his arm and back.
While on active duty, Castille was awarded the National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal and Combat Action Badge. He retired after nearly five years of active duty and three years of inactive duty.
Since his injury, Castille has completed a bachelor of science degree in biblical studies from Liberty University with a double minor in Christian counseling and church ministry.
He and his wife, Rebecca, have four daughters and three grandchildren. While serving as a full-time caregiver to Jason, Rebecca has also received her Master’s Degree in counseling. She hopes to one day work as a therapist and help others.
Operation FINALLY HOME, Brohn Homes and H-E-B are proud to partner to build the Castille family a new home in Elgin, Texas.
