Proud to support Wade Mitcheltree and the Gary Sinise Foundation

We are extremely proud to support the Gary Sinise foundation with the design of an adapted smart home for wounded veteran SFC Wade Mitcheltree and his family. We wish the Mitcheltree's many happy years in their home.

US Army SFC Wade Mitcheltree grew up in Pennsylvania. He enlisted in the Army during high school and left for basic training two weeks after graduating. Wade spent several years at Ft. Bragg and Ft. Richardson before deploying overseas. He served three tours, one in Iraq and two in Afghanistan. His platoon worked with local police to ensure the security of their surrounding areas. On August 13, 2012 near Kandahar, Afghanistan, Wade was severely injured by an improvised explosive device (IED). He lost his right leg above the knee and his right arm below the elbow. He also suffered muscle and nerve damage in his lower left leg, a snapped pelvis, and ruptures to both ear drums.

A month later, Wade was flown to Brooke Army Medical Center with his wife, Katie. His two sons and family soon joined them. In January 2013, Wade was discharged and began rehabilitation at the Center for the Intrepid. His progress in rehabilitation has continued to improve and his outlook on life has been positive. In 2016, due to the severity of Wade's injuries, his left leg was amputated below the knee.

“My biggest desire now is to be there for my wife and children as much as possible,” Wade said, explaining, "I have missed so much.” The Gary Sinise Foundation is proud to build the Mitcheltrees a specially adapted smart home in Tigard, OR.
