At the March 18 celebration in Wind Gap, Pa, Oticon Government Services team members presented Cpl. Lasko and his family with a gas grill as a special housewarming gift.

“We are proud to partner with Homes For Our Troops in helping to advance recovery and rebuild lives for American heroes, like Corporal Lasko,” said Oticon National Sales Director Candace Depp, AuD. “Each day, through Veterans Affairs, the Department of Defense and other federal agencies, Oticon works to provide life-changing hearing technology that improves hearing and quality of life for Veterans and active-duty military personnel. Joining in events, like today’s celebration, provides another way for our team to show support and appreciation for the sacrifices made by our nation’s Veterans.”   

Following a flag raising and color guard presentation, the Lasko family welcomed visitors to tour their new home. In 2004, Cpl. Lasko lost his left leg below the knee and sustained a traumatic brain injury and other injuries on a recon mission with the 22nd Marine Service Support Group for the 22nd Marine Expeditionary in Afghanistan. The specially adapted custom home will provide Cpl. Lasko, his wife Jess, and their two sons, Luke and Ben, peace of mind and enable them to look forward.
