On January 28, 2022 Gregory Boylan, President of the West Point Chapter of the National Infantry Association, made a donation of $2,640 to the Tunnel to Towers Foundation West Point’s 18th Annual Infantry Ball.
Tunnel to Towers CEO and Chairman Frank Siller was invited to the event to represent the Foundation, to recognize the tremendous work Tunnel to Towers does in providing catastrophically wounded veterans with custom-built mortgage free smart homes, paying off the mortgages for Gold Star and Fallen First Responder families with young children, as well as providing mortgage-free comfort homes for veterans experiencing homelessness. “We thank the Tunnel to Tower Foundation for their incredible service to our fellow veterans, first responders, and Americans,” said Gregory Boylan.
West Point has hosted the Annual Infantry Ball for the last 17 years, and the military academy commissions over 220 Cadets who have been chosen to serve as Infantry Officers. “They are at the ‘tip of the spear’ meeting our nation’s enemies anymore in the world face-to-face in the crucible of ground combat”, said Gregory Boylan. “The Annual Infantry Ball at West Point celebrates the their choice and provides a tremendous opportunity to welcome them into the branch in a memorable and inspiring way that sustains the camaraderie that makes the Infantry branch the envy of the Free World.”
The donation benefits the In the Line of Duty Program which provides mortgage free homes to our nation’s catastrophically injured veterans and first responders, as well as provides mortgage free homes to Gold Star families and Fallen First Responder families with young children, and provides mortgage-free comfort homes for homeless veterans through our Veteran Homelessness recipient program.
