Home Automation for Anthony Yanaz
Marine Lance Corporal Anthony Yanaz was left a quadriplegic when an improvised explosive device struck the driver’s side of his convoy in Afghanistan back in 2010. After emergency surgery, multiple treatments and therapy, Yanaz has since regained some use of his hands.
Thanks to the foundation Homes for the Troops, he now lives in an Oklahoma home decked out with home automation technology that makes it easier for him to live and enjoy life with his wife and son.
