A central Indiana soldier who lost both of his legs in a bombing in Afghanistan is ready to return home after a year-and-a-half of treatment at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.
Army Infantryman Tim Senkowski is scheduled to leave Monday with relatives to return to Anderson. The 30-year-old Senkowski lost both his legs in October 2011 when an improvised explosive device exploded while he was serving in Afghanistan.
The Herald Bulletin reports the veterans organization The Path Home is building a specially designed home to accommodate Senkowski, his wife and their two children. Senkowski's wife Erica has disabilities of her own stemming from rheumatoid arthritis and lupus.
Until their house is completed, the family will be staying with Senkowski's mother and stepfather.
