West Shore Home® Provides Texas Korean War Era Veteran with a New Shower through West Shore for Warriors Initiative

West Shore Home®, one of the fastest growing home remodeling companies in the nation, is leading up to Veterans Day by providing deserving veterans with a new shower. The installations will take place now through November. In total, the company is gifting eight new showers to select veterans nationwide.

In the San Antonio region, U.S. Marine Corps veteran Nolan Yates of Converse, TX has received a new, safety enhanced walk-in shower. Young served in Korea from 1953 to 1955, right after the war ended. He retired as a Meritorious Corporal.

West Shore Home removed his old tub and installed a new walk-in shower. It includes a shower seat and a 6-way magnetic handheld shower wand to make the showering experience safer and easier.

“It is very humbling to be selected by such an amazing company. Knowing that my service to the country is appreciated by others gives me a great feeling,” said Yates. “I have balance problems, so this new walk-in shower is very helpful. What West Shore Home is doing for someone in need is unheard of and I am greatly appreciative.”

Yates lives with his son, retired Army Sergeant Lonny Yates. The younger Yates also served in South Korea, several decades after his father was stationed in the East Asian peninsula.

“It is humbling to know that there is an amazing company out there that is willing to go to the expense of remodeling a bathroom to serve veterans in need,” said Lonny Yates. “It will ensure my father has the ability to continue to be independent in his later years.”

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.

“Part of our mission is to give back to our veterans who bravely served our country. Many suffered injuries during their service and a new bath or shower with enhanced safety features can make a tremendous difference,” said B.J. Werzyn, President and CEO, West Shore Home. “Through West Shore for Warriors we are proud give back in such a meaningful way.”
