Actor Josh Duhamel is doing some pretty cool things for veterans!
Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you the #EnListMe campaign film.
In this documentary-style film, Josh meets Marine Sergeant Ben Tomlinson at his specially designed smart-home in Jacksonville, Alabama, to speak with Ben and his family about their journey and the positive impact this home has had on his life. On his second tour of duty Ben was shot by enemy fire while providing rooftop security for his team. As a result, Ben was paralyzed with limited mobility below his chest.
The film is part of the #EnlistMe campaign — a Military Appreciation Month partnership with Josh Duhamel, Building for Americas Bravest (BFAB) and automaker GMC. The goal of the campaign is to raise funds and awareness to build smart-homes that meet the needs of severely injured veterans, like Ben Tomlinson.
As background, Josh Duhamel’s connection to the military began a long time ago. He grew up near an Air Force base in North Dakota, has an aunt who completed a number of tours with the National Guard and his grandfather was a proud Marine. In fact, Josh’s emotional visit with Ben and his family took place just after his grandfather was honored in a military funeral service.
