When it comes to toughness, marines are up near the top of any list. But that doesn't make them immune to tragedy even outside the war zone.
For one local marine that tragedy came in the form of a motorcycle accident. Now a community is coming together to lend a helping hand to the marine and his mom.
Dale Kimball, a Seymour carpenter is on a mission, to make Nancy Sibley's home comfortable and accessible for her son Ian, a marine who has spent the last 13 months in hospitals and rehab centers following a motorcycle accident in Kansas.
Nancy is optimistic about the prognosis but optimistic at the same time. A tough situation for a man who volunteered to put his life on the line for his country, for 12 years.
So now a group of volunteers led by Dale, are donating their time and talents to ensure Ian's home is as comfortable as possible.
The next step, getting him out of the rehab center in Minnesota for home cooking and continued work towards improvement , with Nancy as his biggest booster.
