A Smart Home for Kyle Hockenberry
On June 15, 2011, while on foot patrol, 19-year-old CPL Kyle Hockenberry stepped on a pressure plate IED and was blown over a two story grape hut. The blast cost him both of his legs above the knee and his left arm. Relying on his own strength and determination, Kyle has continued to move forward, aided by the unwavering support of his wife, parents, and extended family.
Building for America's Bravest is honored to be building a Smart Home for Kyle to give him back some of the independence he lost due to his injuries. Kyle's home is well underway and is expected to be ready for him to move in this spring.
A special thanks to Carpet One Floor & Moore of Athens, OH for assisting with the flooring installations for Kyle's home.
