Ground Breaks on $400,000 Smart Home for Navy Seal Veteran

Posted: Updated:
LOCKWOOD - The ground has been broken on land in Billings that will turn into a smart home for a former Navy Seal and his family.

Many dignitaries and members of the community were on hand for the special ceremony. Bo Reichenbach, one of only two double amputees in Navy Seal history, is receiving a $400,000 grant to build the home. His dad, a local contractor, will help. The donation comes from the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation through its Building for America's Bravest program. Bo thanked the organization, the Phoenix Patriot Foundation and many others for the gift.

“It's pretty overwhelming and special and amazing to be able to receive this from these foundations and be able to give me and my family independence to live a good happy life. It's just amazing,” said Reichenbach.
     
Bo's home should be finished sometime this fall.
