Cpl. Nathan Jakubisin, his wife and son were given the keys to a brand new home in Fuquay-Varina.
Jakubisin, a purple heart recipient, suffered severe leg and hand injuries in June 2012 after an IED exploded while he was on patrol in Afghanistan's Helmand Province.
He says the home will help his transition into civilian life.
"I lost it when I walked into my son's room. All the rooms are beautiful, but, I mean, he has his own room," Jakubisin said.
The home was built through "Operation: Coming Home," a joint project led by the Home Builders Association of Raleigh and Wake County.
