Tunnel to Towers

Home Dedication Ceremony



The Patriot Guard Riders have been requested to stand a flag line for Tunnel to Towers.


On February 07, 2007, during his third deployment, SFC Travis Vendela, a senior NCO on a reconnaissance unit in the US Army, received orders to establish a foothold on the bridge above the Tigris River. His Humvee was leading a convoy when it was struck twice by explosively formed penetrators (EFP). He lost both legs above the knee. He also suffered a severely fractured pelvis, a fractured elbow, a shattered jaw, C3 and C4 spine fractures, and a traumatic brain injury.


This will be a HOTH format. The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation will present SFC Vendela with the key to his specially adapted, mortgage-free Smart Home. The ceremony will begin in Huntsville at 10:00 AM on Friday, July 03, 2020. We will escort SFC Travis Vendela to his new home, where we will stand a flag line for the ceremony.


The ride captain for this mission will be Mark “Shorty” Hannah and he can be reached at: 801-745-5051.
