BATH, N.Y.(WENY)-- In 2010 SSG Brent Nadjadi was serving a tour in Afghanistan conducting a route clearance operation when his humvee was struck by an improvised explosive device.

Nadjadi was left with serious injuries to both of his legs and despite dozens of limb salvage surgeries, Nadjadi eventually lost both of his legs.

The home that Nadjadi is currently living in was hard to navigate because as Nadjadi’s daughter describes it, “the stairway is like this, and it's like this thin and we didn't even go up there because the rooms shake when you are up there, it's like oh my god.” 

Dozens of community members and local police officers attended Brent Nadjadi’s frame signing celebration where a ceremony was held thanking everyone involved and following the ceremony, friends and loved ones were welcomed to leave brent a message on the wooden structure of the home. 

Because of the state of Nadjadi’s current home and the great things he continues to do for the Bath community, he was chosen by the non-profit organization, Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors to receive a brand new accessible and amputee safe home. 

Jared Allen’s Homes for Wounded Warriors is a non-profit organization created for the sole purpose of raising money to build or modify homes for America’s injured Military Veterans. 

Nadjadi’s new home will be 100-percent accessible and tailored specifically to accommodate SSG Nadjadi’s injuries and will include adaptations making it easier for him to live his daily life in the comfort of a home that works for him. 

“I don't know if it has hit me yet but I am truly grateful,” said Nadjadi. “ From the bottom of my heart, I can't thank you guys enough, everyone that is involved, friends, family, that came here to be a part of this.”
