Tunnel to Towers
Home Dedication Ceremony
Huntsville, Utah – 07-03-20
ABOUT THE MISSION:
On February 07, 2007, during his third deployment, SFC Travis Vendela, a senior NCO on a reconnaissance unit in the US Army, received orders to establish a foothold on the bridge above the Tigris River. His Humvee was leading a convoy when it was struck twice by explosively formed penetrators (EFP). He lost both legs above the knee. He also suffered a severely fractured pelvis, a fractured elbow, a shattered jaw, C3 and C4 spine fractures, and a traumatic brain injury. Thank you, SFC Travis Vendela, for your service. The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation will present SFC Vendela with the key to his specially adapted, mortgage-free Smart Home.
