We are very excited to partner with Team Shamrock and the The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation to help build a mortgage-free smart home for a catastrophically injured local Neptune service membe, Scott Nokes. During his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, Scott, a Marine corporal, developed an infection that would result in the loss of both his legs and his eyesight.
The home will be custom designed to address his unique needs. The house will features automated doors and lighting, wider halls and doorways, special showers to accommodate wheelchairs, automatic door openers, cabinets, counters, and stove tops that can be raised and lowered, back-up generators, and central heating and air conditioning systems that can be controlled by tablets. This home will enable the veteran tolive a better, more independent life.
