Injured Marine Gets Texas-Size 'Thank You'

Ad Feedback

A Texas community offered a big "thank you" to Lance Cpl. Daniel Peterson, an injured Marine sniper.

The 22-year-old lost both legs in an explosion while serving on his second tour in Afghanistan.

Volunteers in Tomball, Texas, teamed up with a group called Homes for Our Troops to give the veteran a place to call his own that catered to his needs free of charge.

The house has wider doorways, lower countertops, pull-out cabinets, and a user-friendly bathroom.

"I can't take care of them on the battlefield anymore, so I can make sure they're taken care of in the aftermath," Homes for Our Troops founder Larry Gill said.

"To know that there's Americans out there that not just say they support the troops, but actually act," Peterson said.

Peterson and his family received the key to his new home at a special ceremony when the home was recently completed.
