Wounded Army Veteran gets to return home

April 5, 2018 in Uncategorized

An Army veteran who is finally home after being critically wounded in an accidental shooting is getting some much-needed help.

Spc. Josh Keller spent nearly a year in a Department of Veterans Affairs hospital in Massachusetts after he was injured in Washington state last year. A fellow soldier accidentally shot him in the neck, hitting his spinal cord.

“I’m a C-4 quadriplegic,” Keller said. “I have loss of function in my legs and arms. From the chest down, I can’t feel.”

Keller must use a wheelchair, but he is now able to live at home thanks to a new addition to the house where he grew up.

“New Hampshire, and especially the town of Hudson, really came together for me,” he said.

Keller received a special adaptive housing grant from the VA to help build a living space for him and his caregiver. He said $80,000 was donated, and community partners stepped in to help make it happen.

Project 17: Day 1 of installing new James Hardie fiber cement siding for Army special Joshua Keller. We have 20 volunteers from various companies donating their time and talent for the day. Thank you to James Hardie building products for donating all the materials.
