CPL Todd Love, left, and SFC Michael Schlitz will be the recipients of Smart Homes in Georgia as part of the Building for America’s Bravest program

Join the Falcons and Gary Sinise and his Lt. Dan Band on Nov. 3, 2012 at the Verizon Amphitheater at Encore Park in Alpharetta to help raise money to build Smart Homes in Georgia for wounded military veterans as part of the Building for America’s Bravest program.

The benefit concert will honor two American heros, CPL. Todd Love and SFC. Michael Schlitz as 100 percent of the funds raised will go toward Smart Homes for Love and Schlitz to be built in Georgia.

Love, from Acworth, Ga., lost both his legs and an arm in Afghanistan.

Schlitz, who lives in Columbus, Ga., was the only person to survive in his vehicle in Iraq. He was burned over 85 percent of his body and lost both his arms.

The concert is being put on in a partnership between the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation — which was started by the family and friends of Siller, who was a firefighter killed in the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center — and the Gary Sinise Foundation. Sinise, best known for his work as Lt. Dan in Forrest Gump, is closely involved in the project to build Smart Homes for wounded vets. He has helped build homes for five quadruple amputees and has offered to build 53 others for triple amputees.
