HAMLIN TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Residents in a western Michigan community have helped dedicate a home to a soldier who lost both arms in 2012 when his vehicle struck a roadside bomb in Afghanistan.

The Ludington Daily News reports (http://bit.ly/1eYUzgD ) that a ceremony was held Monday in Hamlin Township for retired U.S. Army National Guard Sgt. Eric Lund.

The adaptive Helping a Hero home is designed with special features, like audio-command options that allow Lund to live more independently.

Houston-based Helping a Hero provided $125,000 in funding for the home. The nonprofit works with builders, developers and others to provide adaptive homes for military personnel severally injured in the war on terror.

Some of the labor and materials for Lund’s new home also were donated.
