Triple amputee Marine gets a custom-designed ‘smart home’ from the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation

Thomas Caleb Getscher, a U.S. Marine who was left a triple amputee from a bomb blast in Afghanistan in 2012, will move into a custom-built “smart home” designed especially for him, writes Guy Leonard in the St. Mary’s County Times.

The Stephen Siller Tunnel To Towers Foundation, named in honor of an FDNY firefighter who gave his life during the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center funded the house. The Foundation builds many houses for severely wounded veterans.

The house is designed with electronics and other features so that Getscher can use anything in it.

“I’m extremely grateful and blessed to be living there. There are a lot of good people who made this happen, the[y] just give and give,”he said.
