West Shore Home® Gifts New Shower to South Carolina Veteran with a Unique Connection to History

Mechanicsburg, Pa.West Shore Home®, one of the fastest growing home remodeling companies in the nation, is proud to honor Pendleton, S.C. Army veteran Sgt. Billy Stamey with a new, safety enhanced shower as part of its West Shore for Warriors™ initiative. Sgt. Stamey spent a career in the Army, serving four campaigns during the Vietnam era.

Sgt. Stamey enlisted in the Army in 1955, serving his country for two decades. As a drill sergeant stationed in Ft. Hood, Texas he was assigned a newly enlisted Elvis Presley for training. As an armor specialist, Stamey trained Presley on military basics and protocol.

“Elvis was a good guy, and not a bad shot either. If you were in his circle, you were well taken care of,” said Sgt. Stamey.

Sgt. Stamey went on to serve in Vietnam, earning both the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart. Now 87, he has many health issues related to Agent Orange exposure, as well as hearing loss from operating long gun tanks.

“When we came back from Vietnam, we did not get a warm welcome,” said Sgt. Stamey. “It was later people started realizing what we went through, we were ordered to go to war. None of us expected anything, so for West Shore Home to do this for me, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it.”

“We could not be prouder to recognize Sgt. Stamey through West Shore for Warriors. He served our country in one of the most difficult times in American history. To be able to help him continue to live independently and safely in his home is our honor,” said B.J. Werzyn, President and CEO of West Shore Home.

West Shore Home is replacing Stamey’s old fiberglass unit with a new modern, walk-in shower with multiple safety features. They include grab bars, a teak shower seat and multiple, easy to reach shelves.

“This shower means I can get in and out without falling. When you get older and with health issues, a simple shower is hard,” said Sgt. Stamey. “I can’t express how thankful I am. I signed up to protect my country, I never expected anything like this. You have no idea how this will change my life.”

The mission of West Shore for Warriors is to serve U.S. veterans, active military members, and their families. With its national footprint, West Shore Home is uniquely positioned to assist veterans in need.

West Shore Home specializes in window, door, and bath remodeling and replacement, with most projects completed in just one day. Its vision is to become America’s Most Admired Home Remodeling Brand®.
