Volunteers have rallied behind Tyler. His new home is being built in St. Johns County. 

Tyler, a Mandarin High graduate, is the local marine almost killed in Afghanistan. Now he's a triple amputee.

There are three ways to donate to Tyler so he and his new wife can have furniture when Tyler returns from rehab at Bethesda.

1)  You can stop by the Ashley Furniture store in Orange Park or the Town Center and get information on how to donate. There you can also sign your name and message on a piece of wall that will go into Tyler's new home.

2) You can send a check to this address:

Hero's Wedding
c/o Davis Capital
4788 Hodges Blvd.
Suite 201
Jacksonville, Fla. 32224

Troy Davis at Davis Capital Management is the investment expert counseling Tyler and Ashley about their finances.  Davis has opened an account for the newlyweds.

3) You can pay by credit card or PayPal by clicking on a secure site.  A local IT consulting firm, ACTS, has stepped forward to donate its services for Tyler's financial future.
