Stateline area marine Noah Currier was deployed to Iraq in February, but then just one week after arriving back in the states, Noah was involved in a car accident that left him paralyzed from the neck down. Some members of the community are helping him rebuild his life.
When Noah Currier comes home next month, he'll not only receive a hero's welcome, he'll get a token of appreciation from an entire community. Most have never met the 21-year-old marine, but are volunteering their services and supplies to build a handicap accessible suite just for him.
Friends and neighbors say they've never experienced so many people coming together to help a family in need, a project that will make life easier for a soldier who risked his life to do the same for an entire country. A fundraiser in Noah's honor will be held this Sunday. It's at the Candlewick Lake Outpost Center on Caledonia Road in Belvedere.
There'll be a pig roast, live music and an auction. All the proceeds will go to Noah. He is expected to return home September 15.
