Wounded Veteran is Given Brand New Home

On Saturday, marine LCpl. Cody Evans was given the keys to his brand new home. Volunteers from around the country worked around the clock to construct his beautiful new house and finished in a matter of days.

Evans was injured in Afghanistan back in 2011 in an explosion that took both of his legs. The non-profit organization known as A Soldier's Journey Home reached out to Evans in October and announced they would be building him a wheelchair friendly home.

When he was finally given the keys to his new home, Evans remarked that it was a very emotional day.

"It's pretty wild," Evans said during his initial viewing.

The many volunteers that pitched in for this amazing effort consisted of firefighters, police officers, and several veterans from 13 different states.
