WTS Paradigm, the provider of fenestration software for dealers and manufacturers, recently donated a significant monetary contribution to Homes for our Troops to assist with completing a Wisconsin home project for injured war veteran, US Army Specialist, Jason Schulz.

Shultz was injured in Mosul, Iraq, in November 2007 when the vehicle he was riding in was hit by an IED. This explosion severed both legs and damaged his right hand. Since this tragic event, he has been going through continuous physical therapy and rehabilitation. In 2009, Shultz was selected by Homes for our Troops to receive a handicap accessible house built in his hometown, Eagle, Wis., to help him better live with his disability.

WTS Paradigm was among a handful of sponsors to help with donations to complete the build out for the home. Owners of WTS Paradigm, Nathan Herbst and Lyn Hartl, both requested participation in this donation. “Medford, Wis., was recently honored to have a presentation of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and it made us think of ways that we could give back to people who have given everything for our freedom,” states Hartl, whose own son Cole will be deployed to Iraq with his troop #273 Sapper Co. from Medford, Wis., early this year. “Helping Jason was a way to reach out to those who serve in Wisconsin and to show our thanks for their service.”

“Our donation is a small thank you for all who have served and are serving overseas,” adds Herbst.

Shultz's story is detailed in the following YouTube video:
