Rehoboth Beach, DE
A family-owned flooring business with close ties to the Rehoboth Beach community has helped make it possible for a gravely injured Maryland Marine to finally come home.
On January 30th, officials from the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers’ Building for America’s Bravest program, along with Ashley Anderson Wilson, the third-generation owner of Anderson Carpet One Floor & Home, were on hand to welcome USMC Corporal Clark Cavalier to his newly donated smart home in Marydel, MD. Corporal Cavalier suffered the loss of both legs, as well as serious injuries to his left arm and hand in April 2011, after stepping on an IED during his tour of the Marja Province, Afghanistan.
Anderson Carpet One Floor & Home joined forces with Building for America’s Bravest to build a new smart home for Corporal Cavalier. The Delaware flooring store – owned by the Anderson family for over four decades- generously provided flooring throughout the home, as well as installation services. Special features throughout the smart home make it possible for Corporal Cavalier to live in comfort and style: enabling him to do many of the day-to-day tasks many of us take for granted.
Wilson, who worked in Homeland Security prior to joining the family business, said she jumped at the opportunity to assist the young American hero in his homecoming. “To give back to Clark in this way for all he has done meant the world to me, my team, and our local partners,” she added. “We wish Clark all the best and hope this brings him a lifetime of happiness.”
Carpet One Floor & Home is proud to partner with Building for America’s Bravest, helping veterans with life-altering injuries return to their communities and live as independently as possible. For more information on the Building for America’s Bravest program, visit www.carpetone.com/our-bravest.
