It can be difficult to update your home when you’re a quadruple amputee, and when you’ve been severely wounded serving your nation, you shouldn’t have to. That’s the thinking behind the R.I.S.E. program, founded by actor Gary Sinise.
Photos from our project on behalf of Sgt. Frazier’s family in Chatham County are included in this Stone World article from November 28. The article also includes comments from our own Laura Grandlienard, chairwoman of the Natural Stone Institute’s R.I.S.E. board. Read the article here.
For the past few years, ROCKin’teriors has participated in the Gary Sinise Foundation’s R.I.S.E. program (Restoring Independence Supporting Empowerment) to help build specially adapted smart homes for America’s severely wounded veterans. We participate in cooperation with home builders, building industry materials providers, and other Natural Stone Institute (NSI) members.
ROCKin’teriors was fortunate to partner with the Gary Sinise Foundation last month to begin construction on a very special home for retired U.S. Marine Corps Sergeant Michael Frazier and his family. The “Walls of Honor” event included veterans, community leaders and friends and family writing words of gratitude on the walls of the new home being built for the Frazier family.
Recently Rockin’teriors participated in the “Walls of Honor” project with the Gary Sinise Foundation and The Natural Stone Institute to honor USMC Sergeant Michael Frazier and his wife Monica. We’re participating in this project to build a home for Sgt. Frazier, who was wounded overseas while helping to preserve our freedom.
