Local members of Defining Forces Veterans Club set out to host a fundraising event for Lance Corp. Cody Evans (United States Marine Corps, retired) Saturday, but the rain did not cooperate.
Evans, of Speedwell, Tennessee, was injured by an IED while fighting in Afghanistan in 2011. At 19 years old, he became a double amputee. Defining Forces hosted the event to raise money for “A Soldier’s Journey Home,” a group that builds houses for armed forces injured in combat, which is building Evans a handicap-accessible house.
