OAKLAND, Fla. - A house doesn't become a home until it's filled with family, love and -- as the nonprofit organization Home at Last works to include – honor.
The nonprofit dedicated its seventh home to wounded former Marine Corps Sgt. Seann Windfield Saturday morning in Oakland.
The veteran told News 6 he can't wait to move in and make his new home his foundation.
“I could say thank you a million times, however my family's actions and being good Americans will prove our gratitude," Windfield said.
Windfield, who served in the Marines for eight years, was overwhelmed as he looked around his new, mortgage-free home.
Windfield did three tours in Iraq before he was medically discharged in 2012 after hurting his back.
Now he's going through the tough transition from Marine to civilian.
