Warrant Officer 3 Jamie Tilke has spent the past 15 months creating more housing for soldiers at Fort Bragg. Completed just weeks before his retirement following 24 years of service, Tilke has turned low-income housing into a set of duplexes. He found the inspiration after years of being overseas and having to stay in hotels, as well as staying in hotels at Fort Bragg. “One day I was like, ‘wait, why can’t we go back to the U.S. and provide upscale accommodations at the government rate?'” commented Tilke. Other veterans also pitched in by contributing furniture, decorations, and blankets.
