One soldier receives the gift of home this holiday season

In the spirit of the holiday season, Progress Lighting is proudly working with several other community organizations to help one very deserving soldier through Operation Finally Home – a Texas-based charity dedicated to building mortgage-free homes for our wounded men and women in uniform and the families of the fallen.

The current recipient is for a young man named Cody Nusbaum in New Braunfels, Texas. At 24 years of age, he was shot by a Taliban insurgent 11 times and has had more than 70 surgeries to repair his injuries. Doctors didn’t believe he’d walk again but in early October Cody took his first steps and has been making strides ever since. On October 6, Cody took his first steps into the framework of his new home.

We’re excited to be a leading supplier of lighting fixtures in Cody’s new home! The project is expected to be completed in early March, and we look forward to sharing updates along the way.

In the meantime, you can learn more about Cody and Operation Finally Home at, and even watch a video of Cody learning for the first time that he’s going to receive his house.
