In 2006, An improvised explosive devise blew up local soldier Sergeant Brian Fountaine’s Humvee, destroying both his legs below the knee. He was forced out of combat and bound to bed. In 2007, Ken and his team worked with Home For Our Troops, a Taunton organization that fundraises and coordinates efforts for disabled veterans who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Together they built a wheelchair-accessible bathroom in Sergeant Foundtaine’s home with grab bars and modified cabinets to thank him for his service and make his life a little bit easier.
