Army Sgt. Adam Keys' life was changed in an instant in Kandahar Afghanistan. An IED, like the one he and his crew specialized in hunting and disarming, was detonated remotely. He was the only one to survive the 2010 incident, but lost both legs above the knee and his left arm due to infections.
His life changed again Wednesday when he used his phone to open the front door of his new home in outside Annapolis, donated via organizations dedicated to providing smart homes for seriously wounded vets.
"Wow. Goodness, goodness, goodness," were all the words the 31-year-old could muster as he rolled his wheelchair into the spacious home, built to accommodate his physical challenges.
