Tomlinson’s House Dedication
America will soon recognize the courage and sacrifice of its military heroes with Veterans Day, tomorrow. But, today, one local town celebrated and awarded its local Marine Hero on the 239th anniversary of the creation of the U.S. Marine Corps with the keys to a new home. Paralyzed war hero Marine Sergeant Ben Tomlinson received the keys to his new customized “Smart Home in Jacksonville. Hundreds of students and supporters attended the festivities. Sergeant Tomlinson says today is above and beyond anything he wanted. The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Tower’s Foundation, the Gary Sinise Foundation, and a host of national and local sponsors helped to construct Tomlinson’s new home.
