That is why when tragedy strikes and they do not come home, we need to be there to help,a?? said Frank Siller, Chairman and CEO of Tunnel to Towers.A Siller added, a??By paying off the mortgages on these homes, we hope to bring a little stability and security to their lives in these uncertain times by providing them with the knowledge that they never have to make another mortgage payment.a??Army MAJ Agustin Gonzalez was a career infantry officer who served four tours in Afghanistan.
