The Tunnel to Towers Foundation (T2T) welcomed U.S. Army Specialist Jerome Rillera into his new smart home in the Do Good Village in Land O’ Lakes. The T2T program builds specially adapted, mortgage-free smart homes that help the most catastrophically injured veterans and first responders reclaim their day-to-day independence. Rillera served in the U.S. Army Signal Corp and during his military career earned numerous accolades including Soldier of the Month. While in combat in Vietnam, Rillera came into contact with Agent Orange, resulting in PTSD, almost complete vision loss, and hearing damage. In recognition of the 22nd anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, T2T provided 22 mortgage-free homes to heroes nationwide.
