ELAN Powers Smart Home Oasis for Gary Sinise Foundation
After United States Marine Corps veteran Jason Ross returned from his first tour in Japan, he reenlisted in a new field – explosive ordinance disposal (EOD). Through vigorous training, Ross became an EOD specialist and was deployed to Afghanistan twice, putting his life on the line every day to protect his country’s freedom. In March 2011, Ross stepped on an improvised explosive device, losing both of his legs and part of his pelvic bone. The Gary Sinise Foundation learned about Ross’ misfortune and honored him and his two daughters with a customized smart home through the Gary Sinise Foundation’s R.I.S.E. program.
