Hullco chose to be a part of Baths for the Brave because it wanted to help improve the life of a deserving veteran in Tennessee. It chose Billy Bond from Chattanooga, Tennessee, who served in the U.S. National Guard from 2001 to 2010. Bond completed two tours in Iraq, has had PTSD and suffered a traumatic brain injury while serving overseas. Hullco knows how much a new shower would improve the everyday life of Bond, which is why the company is remodeling Bond’s shower on Nov. 8. To learn more about Bond, see his story below.
United States Army National Guard
Billy Bond of Chattanooga, Tennessee, served in the U.S. Army National Guard from 2001 – 2010 and served two tours in Iraq; the first from 2004 to 2005 and the second from 2008 to 2009.
During his time overseas, Bond unfortunately suffered a traumatic brain injury and is now currently on military disability and unable to work. His wife, Sedara, helps him with many of his day-to-day activities such as taking a shower. She says the shower is a special place for her husband.
“He has trouble sleeping and has nightmares regularly, but it seems bathing or showering really relaxes him,” Sedara said. “To be chosen for Baths for the Brave is a dream come true because this will make life so much easier.”
Hullco is proud to offer the Bond family a new shower to help with daily activities, and is excited to be partnering with nine other home improvement companies from across the nation for the first-ever Baths for the Brave event.
