Home for a Hero
On Oct. 15, 2011, during his second deployment with Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 7th Marines, Marine Sergeant Franklin was returning from a night observation post when he stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED) in Sangin, Afghanistan. The blast resulted in the loss of both his legs and two fingers on his right hand. .
Now medically retired, he and his girlfriend train service dogs. Home for our Troops is building a new accessible home for Sgt. Milan in Shelton, Washington and Belco is supplying our new XT treated ceiling panels for the front porch and ArmorCoat XT trim for the exterior. Just our way of saying thanks to Marine Sgt. Milan Franklin for his sacrifice.
