Our Story

Kasey joined the U.S. Army in 2005. SSG Kasey, a long-range artillery crewman, served a tour in Iraq in 2008 and Afghanistan in 2011.

As with many combat veterans, he had a difficult time adjusting after he returned from Afghanistan. He started using narcotics to cope with stressors. In 2014 he left the military, and his substance abuse issues persisted. Even though he had a great job lined up upon leaving the service, his problems continued to spiral out of control. He went from living in a halfway house, to couch surfing, to living in his car, and became one of our nations’ homeless veterans. Situations continued to go from bad to worse, and he got two DWI charges. Because he was homeless, SSG Kasey didn’t contest jail time. However, his time in jail allowed him to separate from the substances and gain some clarity. When he got out of jail, he started working, going back to school, and reflecting on his experiences. Realizing his circumstances were better than many of his fellow vets because he received an honorable discharge, his passion became to help prevent other veterans from suffering similar fates and sinking into homelessness.

SSG Kasey was fortunate to work in several industries, picking up various skills and trades along the way, and in 2021 launched his business, Defense Home and Roofing. Realizing many vets feel lost in finding help available to them, and recognizing he never wants another veteran to end up on the street, he and his business partner, U.S. Air Force veteran, Ashlynd Flowers have dedicated their efforts to preventing homelessness in our nations’ veterans.
