    Confirmed mission: The Tunnel to Towers Foundation will donate a mortgage-free Smart Home to catastrophically injured US Army veteran SPC Maggie Mae Bilyeu. The PGR has been invited to participate.

    In early 2016, only a couple of months into her deployment to Afghanistan, Maggie was struck by a suicide bomber, leaving her critically injured, and killing two American soldiers and two American contractors. Maggie is an amputee and sustained multiple shrapnel wounds to her chest and torso, a broken leg, and numerous internal injuries as a result of the blast.

    More about her story can be read here: https://t2t.org/sh-recipients/maggie-mae-bilyeu/

    Date/Time: Monday, 19 December 2022. Event begins at 11 am.

    Staging Location: Lago Vista Firehouse #101, 7905 Bronco Ln, Lago Vista, TX 78645.

    The Austin PGR were in Lago Vista, TX today to escort SPC Maggie Mae Bilyeu to her new home. Maggie was struck by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan, leaving her critically injured. The Tunnel to Towers Foundation gave Maggie a new mortgage free home. Three PGR (David, Keith and Warren) braved the weather. It was cold with lots of rain. We got to meet Maggie (what a special person) she is.
