Wounded Soldier Gets Ramp For House

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. - A Kennewick soldier who was wounded in Iraq has a new ramp to help him get in and out of his house.

Operation Thank you and Riding For Christian Motorcycle Association went to his home Wednesday evening and installed a ramp onto his front door.

The materials were donated from various companies in the Tri-Cities.  

Army Staff Sergeant Andrew McMann first made headlines when he re-enlisted from his hospital bed just 48 hours after the explosion.

McMann said he is very thankful for the people who are supporting him.

McMann said, "I'm really grateful four these people to take their own personal time to come out here and they're basically supporting the troops and I appreciate that."

McMann seriously injured his ankles and legs March 23rd when a bomb exploded under his vehicle in Iraq.  He said one foot is worse than the other but he is expected to walk again after more healing and therapy.
