The non-profit organization, which was founded in honor of the fallen firefighter Stephen Siller on September 11, gave US Army specialist Johnathan Mullen and his family a mortgage-free smart home just in time for Easter.
In 2011, Mullen lost both legs while serving in Afghanistan, saying his “beautiful” bespoke home had completely changed his life.
“It will help me live my life independently with no pain or stress,” said the Minnesota veteran “America’s Newsroom” on Friday.
Mullen, a father of two with a third on the way, mentioned that his previous homes were inaccessible to disabled people and he faced many challenges while navigating in a wheelchair.
“It will only allow me to live with less irritability, less pain, and serve my family, wife and children much, much better,” said Mullen.
Tunnel to Towers builds mortgage-free homes and supports Gold Star families with minimum donations of $ 11 from people across the country.
“We did it through the goodness of the Americans who donate Tunneltotowers.org“Frank Siller, CEO of Tunnel to Towers, said to co-host Bill Hemmer,” We want him to be in his new home by Easter … what a better way to do this and start his life . “
Siller added that there are many Americans who have given back to the country and Tunnel to Towers wants to help.
The US Army specialist is studying to become a minister and plans to attend a seminar. Mullen told Hemmer he was extremely “grateful” for his new family home.
“It’s just a great way to celebrate Easter with my family,” said Mullen. “… to worship and only praise God for this wonderful gift from the tunnel to the towers.”
