Greenville, Texas – EyeSite Surveillance, Inc. is pleased to announce that it is partnering with Operation Finally Home to help fulfill its mission to, “…provide custom-built, mortgage-free homes to America’s Heroes and the widows of the fallen who have sacrificed so much to defend our freedoms and our way of life.” EyeSite Surveillance joins Altera Homes and sponsors the Dallas Builders Association to help build a great home for U.S. Army First Sgt. Guillermo Rivas and family in Greenville, Texas.
EyeSite Surveillance, Inc. will be providing real-time video of the construction progress at the home
being built in Greenville, Texas. Upon completion, this home will be handed over First Sgt. Guillermo Rivas and his family during a ribbon cutting ceremony. The home will be theirs to enjoy mortgage-free for life.
Rivas joined the Army National Guard in September 1986, and later joined the U.S. Marine Corps in January 1993. During his 26-year military career, Rivas served various roles, including a machine gunner, rifle team leader and military instructor.
During his time in the military, Rivas served on a number of deployments, including Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Desert Shield and Storm in Kuwait. Rivas is known for always displaying the Army values of loyalty, duty and integrity, working hard to serve his country in any capacity. He also has a passion for teaching, serving as a Senior Military Advisor in the Army ROTC Department at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. He led by example in both the field and the classroom, directly influencing the training of approximately 75 cadets annually.
In 2005, Rivas suffered his first serious injury when he fell into a hole during a night patrol and twisted his lower back. In 2009, he sustained another back injury while jumping off a Bradley Fighting Vehicle (BFV). Rivas has had several back surgeries over the years, yet he still struggles with the back pain and undergoes regular injections and physical therapy. Riva also suffers from a traumatic brain injury (TBI), post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), knee and shoulder injuries, tinnitus and headaches.
During his years of service, Rivas received several accolades including a Purple Heart, four Meritorious Service Medals, a Navy/Marine Combat Action Ribbon, Humanitarian Service Medal and many more. Rivas retired in October 2014, when his injuries prevented him from continuing his military career. He’s very active in his community and serves as a volunteer for his daughter’s high school volleyball team.
