Injured Veteran given a mortgage free home!

Now this is how you treat a military veteran! The men and women that put their lives on the line deserve nothing less!

Here is more from Fox News Insider:

A Marine who lost both of his legs in Afghanistan got the keys to a brand new mortgage-free home in Colorado this weekend.

Nonprofit Homes for Our Troops built the home for Gabe Martinez and his family. Martinez, a former Marine sergeant, lost his legs after stepping on a 20-pound improvised explosive device on Thanksgiving Day in 2010.

The four-bedroom apartment has 155 special adaptations, including automatic door openers, a roll-in shower and roll-in countertops.

It is the 166th house built in 39 states by the nonprofit. Each home averages about $430,000, and all of the money comes from donors.

“We believe this is a moral obligation of our society to take care of our veterans,” Tim McHale, president of Home for Our Troops, said.
