Techno Metal Post of Northern New Jersey builds deck for a wounded soldier.
On November 5, 2011, Techno Metal Post of Northern New Jersey, along with industry association NADRA, participated in the ribbon cutting Ceremony for a wounded American soldier, returning back home from Afghanistan to Monroe Township, NJ. NADRA, the North American Deck & Railing Association, created its Decks for Soldiers (D4S) program several years back, which builds decks at no cost to the returning soldier.
In this case, the soldier was provided with a new deck and railings by NADRA member companies, along with a complete renovation of his house, including all new fixtures and furnishings, state of the art utility services and a roof mounted solar array, which is expected to cover 80% of the electric needs of the renovated home.
This soldier, Lance Corporal Colin Pascik, a two-year veteran of the United States Marine Corps, was wounded in August 2010 by an IED while serving his country proudly in Afghanistan. His injuries resulted in the amputation of both legs. Colin's spirits are unbelievably high and his positive attitude has been an example to all who meet him.
