Returning from a mission in Zabul, Afghanistan on February 2, 2010, Legrand’s last memory is being struck by a large explosion. He survived, but his Commander and the driver did not. Critically injured, Legrand was flown to the nearest hospital where he underwent bilateral above-knee amputations and was diagnosed with traumatic brain injury (TBI). The Gary Sinise Foundation selected Compass Design Build to design and construct Sgt. Strickland and his family a specially adapted smart home in Wildwood, Missouri.
