Chesmar Homes along with the Helping a Hero Foundation were proud to give retired Marine Sergeant Ron Sullivan the keys to his customized, brand-new home out in our Riata community in Schertz, TX. While on patrol in Afghanistan, Ron lost both legs to an IED device on August 23, 2010.
Full deserving of his home, Chesmar Homes was honored to build a place to call home for Ron. Knowing how Ron Sullivan, 24, loves to cook, Chesmar ensured that his new disability would not deter him from enjoying this. Ron’s kitchen is fully customized-from low countertops, low appliances allowing him to reach anything from his wheelchair, to a roll under sink, everything was done to help Ron feel at home. The four bedroom also included wider doors, a roll-in shower, a ramp to his garage, and a cement path alongside his backyard, allowing him to fully enjoy his outdoor space. The way Chesmar designed the home to accomodate Ron’s needs was evident; the home became certified under the American with Disabilities Act.
Meredith Iler, founder and National Chairman for Helping a Hero said “When they’re injured it’s really almost the ending of one dream so I think the home gives them hope.” Chesmar was extremely excited and honored to be part of such positive outlook. When Ron finally received his house keys, he said “This is the next step. It’s exciting,”
Ron Sullivan, welcome to the Chesmar Family.
