A brand-new Fox Nation special brings you an up-close look at how the "Building Homes for Heroes" organization gives back to our nation's military veterans with mortgage-free houses.

On "Fox & Friends" Friday, Ed Henry was joined by the nonprofit group's founder, Andy Pujol, who said he's "never taken a single penny" since starting the organization in 2006.

Pujol said he was inspired to give back after the 9/11 attacks when he helped search-and-rescue efforts at Ground Zero.

Henry also spoke to Purple Heart recipient Capt. Nathan Nelson, an injured Air Force veteran who now serves as the director of military affairs for Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.).

Nelson, who was injured in an attack in Afghanistan, and his wife, Jennifer, received a mortgage-free home from the nonprofit.

"The home was a spectacular gift," said Nelson, adding he was "very fortunate" to have the love and support of his wife of 10 years as he recovered from his injuries.

Pujol said the organization started by gifting one home per year, but with the support of so many Americans, including Sean Hannity and Ainsley Earhardt of Fox News, they can now give and modify 30-40 homes in a year.

"These are beautiful homes, but it's so much more than that. Our goal is to launch lives to a brighter future," he said.
