GOOD NEWS Home Sweet Home: Wounded Vet and Family Given Free House
One of America's heroes and his family recently received a warm homecoming ... and a new home.
During his nine years in the Army, Sgt. Jorge Sepulveda served with the 1st Special Forces Group (Airborne) and with 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne), spending time in Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.
After suffering serious physical and emotional wounds, Sepulveda was listed as fully disabled.
Among Sepulveda's injuries and illnesses are chronic contact dermatitis, a fracture of the sacrum, chronic lower back pain, obstructive sleep apnea, skin fissures, adjustment disorder, degenerative joint disease and chronic pain to his wrists, elbows, knees and groin.
When Building Homes for Heroes, an organization that helps wounded military members rebuild their lives, heard Sepulveda's story, they decided to help out, giving him and his family a home in Apollo Beach, Florida.
The best part? It's totally mortgage-free.
"It's just a real blessing to [be] here and continue my path toward recovery," Sepulveda said. "It's such a beautiful place that I can raise my daughters."
