Ad Feedback

Over the years, millions of military service members have put their lives on the line to defend America's freedoms. Some come back from war with injuries that change their way of life.

Now the group Operation Coming Home is working to help wounded warriors like U.S. Marine Sgt. Carlos Evans live as normal a life as possible by providing them with specialized homes

Evans was on patrol in Afghanistan when he stepped on an improvised explosive device and lost both legs and his left hand.
Since recovering from his injuries, it's been hard for him to care for himself. But thanks to Operation Coming Home, that's about to change.

The group just handed the wounded Marine the keys to his new home.

"The bathroom... the restroom... everything inside the house is adapted for me so that I can do things on my own, so I can continue with my life, to be independent," Evans said.
Evans' wife said she loves the new house, especially the low countertop and sink in the kitchen. She said now her husband can help out and do the dishes.
