While stationed in Iraq in 2007, Specialist Tingle was struck by three motor rounds causing severe injuries to his feet and ankles. Daniel has just come back from a patrol mission and was getting his vehicle serviced. The motor rounds, started hitting, and he ducked into his vehicle. When he thought there was a break he jumped out and ran to the bunker, which is when he was injured. However, it was a good call due to his vehicle being hit as well, in the second round of motor rounds that where hitting. Two on the left side, which took out the middle section of his left foot, and one on the right side which left shrapnel in his right foot, ankle, and leg.
As a result of his injuries, life-saving surgery was necessary, and SPC Tingle was immediately transported to Baghdad and then to Germany for surgeries to treat the wounds to his feet. SPC Tingle was then moved to Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio for further treatment. Here, doctors attempted an experimental surgery using bone and skin from his hip and leg to rebuild his injured left foot.
After months in the hospital and in physical therapy, SPC Tingle was able to walk on his rebuilt foot. Unfortunately, this didn’t last and years later, the constant pain became too unbearable to lead a normal life. At the end of 2015 and after 26 surgeries to address the pain and broken hardware, SPC Tingle had his left foot amputated.
Most of the pain has subsided, but a new set of challenges remain as SPC Tingle lives life with his amputation. The 100% accessible home tailored to his injuries will make a significant difference, allowing him to become more independent and able to perform daily activities without the assistance of others. JAH4WW was honored to build an injury-specific, accessible, and mortgage-free home for SPC Tingle and his family and look forward to watching them celebrating milestones in their forever home.
