LOS ANGELES, Calif. — Orbit Industries has donated a large variety of wiring devices, fittings, lighting, weatherproof products, and more to complete the latest project for “A Soldier’s Journey Home.”
“A Soldier’s Journey Home” is a non-profit organization primarily comprised of current and retired firefighters and retired veterans from more than 14 states who are dedicated to constructing homes for severely injured military veterans. These homes are specifically designed to meet their individual needs and are built in just seven days through the efforts of more than 85 dedicated volunteers.
Orbit’s products were used in a new home in Speedwall, Tenn. for Lance Corporal Cody Evans, USMC. Evans was on a tour in Afghanistan when he was stuck by an IED explosion and lost both of his legs. He has since returned home and is now currently attending Lincoln Memorial University with the plans of becoming a history teacher.
“The entire Orbit Industries family is incredibly grateful to be a part of such as worthy organization,” said David Nikayin, President of Orbit Industries. “Our military veterans have sacrificed a lot in order to protect our country and freedoms. It is only fitting to give back to them in any way possible. We are honored to have contributed to this project and hope to continue to do so in the future.”
