When ex-Green Beret Sergeant Caleb Brewer from Tucson, Arizona, lost both his legs from injuries in Afghanistan, he had almost lost all hope.

When he got home, he didn’t know how he could go on with life.

That’s until he met Gary Sinise, who turned his life around for the better!

Sergeant 1st Class Caleb Brewer first joined the Green Berets in 2012, but suffered life-changing injuries just three years later.

On top of losing his legs, he had a traumatic brain injury and suffered infections and blood clots.

Luckily he survived, and retired in 2016.

The 31-year-old had a lot of trouble returning to ‘normal’ life, and suddenly, every task proved to be a hurdle.

That’s where Gary Sinise comes in—when he heard about Caleb’s trouble, he decided to make sure he would never have to worry about suitable housing.

He persuaded Caleb to apply to the RISE—Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment—program through the Gary Sinise Foundation. It supports injured veterans by building smart homes and vehicles which are specially adapted to their needs!

Caleb was soon approved and his modified home was completed on February 6!

The home has smartphone-controlled functions including being able to see who’s at the door, opening and closing the blinds, adjusting the stereo volume, tilted mirrors, along with other features.

“It’s incredibly overwhelming in a good way. It doesn’t feel real. I never would’ve expected it in a million years,” Caleb said.
