      Sgt Michael Nicholson

FDNY Lt Robert Vogt, Sgt Michael Nicholson,
     and Mayor Bob Buckhorn


Today I attended the groundbreaking for a smart home being built for a local Marine, Sergeant Michael Nicholson. Sgt Nicholson was injured by an IED while on combat foot patrol in Afghanistan in the summer of 2011 and lost both of his legs and his left arm, in addition to suffering a traumatic brain injury.


Tomorrow night, Gary Sinise & the Lt. Dan Band will be holding a benefit concert for Sgt Nicholson in Curtis Hixon Park. By attending, you will be contributing to the construction of his specially designed smart home. You can find out more about Sgt Nicholson's story and purchase tickets here.
