SGW Donates Synthetic Grass to Home of Afghanistan War Veteran


Synthetic Grass Warehouse is honored to donate synthetic turf to the home of U.S. Army Ranger Sgt. First Class Cory Remsburg this past Friday, March 13 in Gilbert, Arizona. East Valley-based Landscape company Accent Landscaping donated their time to install the turf for Sergeant Remsburg’s front and backyard.

Sergeant Remsburg was welcomed into his brand new customized home by national media, project donors and President Obama—who made an unplanned stop after visiting Veteran Affairs in Phoenix, said a New York Times article.

“’The greatest honor of my life is serving as commander in chief of the greatest military the world’s ever known,’” Mr. Obama told media. “’Never give up, never give in’ attitude was the kind of thing that keeps me going.’”

While deployed in Afghanistan, Sergeant Remsburg and his platoon experience a roadside bomb where he sustained serious injuries and was in a three month-long coma. Through Jared Allen Homes for Wounded Warriors, Sergeant Remsburg received a customized home to meet his needs.

Synthetic Grass Warehouse Co-owner Victor Lanfranco reserves a special commitment to foundations that improve the lives of United States veterans. As a Vietnam era veteran, Lanfranco consistently dedicates a portion of his business to those in the armed services.

“It is an honor and a privilege to be put in a position where we can help this American hero,” said Lanfranco. “We never turn our backs on our heroes.”
