A wounded Afghanistan veteran from Minnesota received a donated home from the Tunnel to Towers Foundation on Thursday.
Army Spc. John Mullen fought in the Afghanistan War and lost both of his legs. From then on, he lost much of his day-to-day independence until now.
The Tunnels to Towers Foundation donated a custom-built home in Lake Elmo on Thursday that can suit Mullen’s needs. The foundation builds specially-adapted smart homes for wounded veterans in need to help them regain their independence.
“It kind of seems unreal,” Mullen told KTSP. “I don’t think I fully comprehend how much of a difference it’s going to make, and I think I’ll realize that over time, but just completely blown away and overwhelmed.”

Mullen is not the first wounded war veteran
