Tue, 13 Nov 2012 20:53:51 GMT — The new smart house built for wounded Marine Tyler Huffman is now a home after a year of planning and six months of construction. In a ceremony Monday afternoon, the Siller Foundation turned over the keys to the property. "When this all started, all we were lookin' for was a little help...just simply raisin' some money to modify a simple house," Huffman said. "It's kinda hard to put into words how I feel right now. Gettin' a little emotional..." The Huffman home is the fifth built for wounded warriors by the Siller and Sinise foundations. A total of fifty homes have been promised.
