FROM THE AIA MARYLAND
In late August 2005, residents of the Armed Forces Retirement Home were faced with life-altering and unprecedented devastation. As the wrath of Hurricane Katrina subsided, it became clear that the severely damaged Home could not be salvaged. The attachment and commitment to the site remained strong, however, and a new Home was completed in 2010. Approximately 100 of the original residents returned to the site after 5 years in temporary lodging.
