Save the Date! Fairway’s Military Specialist Certification Program

Mortgage and Lending with Fairway Independent Mortgage Corp Louisiana NMLS#2289 Equal Housing Lender NMLS 69996

We are excited to announce that Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation has once again joined forces with the Boot Campaign and the Military Warriors Support Foundation, non-profit organizations supporting returning American military troops, to present a “mortgage free” home to a wounded military veteran.

While the nation struggles to provide housing opportunities for veterans, Fairway Independent Mortgage will host a “Boot Camp” event in Madison to local mortgage professionals and real estate agents on how to help active U.S. military service members and veterans overcome barriers to homeownership.

Fairway’s Military Specialist Certification Program

Fairway has recognized that due to the nature of their work, active and veteran service members often face an uphill battle when trying to buy a home. The objective of Fairway’s Military Mortgage Specialist and Certified Military Residential Specialist certification programs is to train and equip mortgage and real estate professionals to handle with care the home purchase needs of active duty and former military clients.

Attendees will learn about VA mortgage programs and acquire the unique skills needed to help active military and veterans in their quest for homeownership. The event, hosted by Fairway is also in conjunction with the Boot Campaign, a non-profit organization supporting returning American military troops; as well as Sean Parnell, retired Army Ranger and New York Times best-selling author of “Outlaw Platoon;” and the Military Warriors Support Foundation.

The Boot Campaign

Boot Campaign is a national 501c3 patriotic movement that is dedicated to showing tangible appreciation of our active military; raising awareness of the challenges they face upon return and supporting their transition home.  Through the sale of its signature military combat boots, general public donations, and corporate sponsorship, the Boot Campaign operates five distinct initiatives -- Housing, Jobs, Family Support, Urgent Assistance and Wellness-- that are caring for military personnel, past and present, healing from a variety of physical and emotional combat wounds, embodying the campaign motto that, “When They Come Back, We Give Back”.

Military Warriors Support Foundation

Military Warriors Support Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity, founded by Lt. General, Leroy Sisco, USA (Ret), in 2007. Their Mission is to provide support for our nations combat wounded heroes and Gold Star Families as they transition out of the military and into their new civilian life. This is a very fragile time for these heroes, and their families, and it is the foundations goal to provide programs that facilitate a smooth and successful transition. These programs include home donation, academic and employment assistance, as well as recreational activities.
