New Orleans, LA

MaxHome, based in New Orleans, Louisiana, didn’t hesitate to join the national movement of Baths for the Brave and chose Paul Dunn, a U.S. Air Force veteran who served during the Vietnam War, to receive a newly remodeled shower. To learn more about Dunn, see his story below.



Paul Dunn

United States Air Force Veteran

Paul Dunn is a New Orleans native who served in the U.S. Air Force during the Vietnam War. He was stationed in Okinawa, Japan, and Orlando, Florida, and was part of the security police on top secret missions.

“Many times our Vietnam War veterans weren’t really given the acknowledgement and honor for their time in the service, despite having gone through some incredibly difficult things,” said Larry Closs, president and CEO of MaxHome. “We’re honored to be able to take this day to show Paul how much his military service is appreciated.”

Dunn now has four grown daughters and as he continues to age, simple tasks begin to get harder. This shower remodel will help make life for Dunn in his own home more manageable.

“I appreciate the opportunity tremendously and I was incredibly humbled to learn I was the veteran being chosen for this honor,” said Dunn.

Dunn is one of nearly a dozen veterans across the nation who will get a new shower on Wednesday, Nov. 8.
