Vet Who Deployed 12 Times Gets First Look at New Mortgage-Free Home
What a moment on "Fox & Friends" this morning as a combat veteran and his family got the first look at their new mortgage-free home!
Pete Hegseth was there in his hometown of Forest Lake, Minnesota, for the big reveal to Staff Sgt. Marko Milosevic and his family.
Milosevic, who deployed 12 times to Iraq and Afghanistan, received the new house from U.S. Bank and the Freedom Alliance, which helps give mortgage-free homes to our nation's heroes.
Hegseth talked to the family in front of a huge military vehicle, which was then moved to show the family their new house.
A big crowd, including his fellow veterans, gathered with local leaders and neighbors to applaud the moment.
Hegseth explained that the house underwent a $70,000 renovation to make it good-as-new for the Milosevic family.
He then led the family, including three children, on a tour of the house.
"It's such a relief. We've never owned our own home before," said Milosevic's wife, Samantha.

Milosevic said earlier in the show that he joined the Army at age 17 just a few months before the attacks of September 11, 2001.
He said he enlisted originally to obtain college money and spend four years serving.
"9/11 happened when I was in airborne school and the Ranger recruiter came around and said 'who wants to go to war?' And I decided as an 18 year old, that sounded like something I'd like to do," he recalled.
On his 12 separate deployments, he spent a total of 50 months on the ground in Iraq and Afghanistan and suffered a traumatic brain injury.
Watch the priceless scene above!
