Meet U.S. Army Spec. Philip Olson – Waukesha Operation FINALLY HOME Recipient

Philip was an army specialist for 4 years, 10 months as an infantryman and a gunner. He has lost several soldiers and his Captain. Philip was awarded numerous accommodations such as: Good Conduct Medal, Achievement Medals, Army Commendations, NATO Medals, and many more. He served two tours of duties in Afghanistan.


Philip was shot three times during a firefight and was ejected from a vehicle from an IED Blast.  He has Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), PTSD, and leg and spine issues as a result.

He is currently a student working towards a degree in Mechanical Design. His wife, Chenoah, is a student at Colorado University studying for a business degree and is on the President’s list. She will be transferring to UW to get a graduate degree in economics.Picture2

They have an 8-year-old son named Jonah. They are a young, well-grounded family with a strong work ethic and Philip’s service, achievements, and injuries make him an excellent recipient for an Operation FINALLY HOME house, as he will be able to continue with his education without worrying about a home.



We wish to thank Philip and his family for his sacrifice for our country. Belman Homes is honored to help provide a mortgage-free home to Philip and his family through Operation FINALLY HOME and the generosity of our numerous suppliers, contractors, and community.  Philip’s home will be located in Dunbar Oaks in the City of Waukesha and will be started in September 2016.
