Heroic Images: TIME meets the New Greatest Generation, featuring Dale Beatty, a long time Soleus user.
Dale Beatty, war veteran, bilateral amputee and founder of Purple Heart Homes, is featured on the cover of the August 29th edition of TIME magazine. A long-time wearer of the Soleus feet, Dale founded the Purple Heart Homes with John Gallina, after both were severely wounded in Iraq.
Purple Heart Homes, Inc. is dedicated to providing personalized housing solutions for Service Connected Disabled Veterans and their families that are substantial in function, design and quality—homes that are fit to welcome home, and thank, the fighting men and women of America. Each case is different, but in all cases Purple Heart Homes provides at little or no cost to the veteran a “quality of life solution” that creates an injury specific, barrier free-living environment. These solutions can range from remodeling an existing home already owned by the veteran, to creating an entire living space from the ground up.
