PHOENIX -- If you serve in the military there's a program out there aimed at helping you with home ownership.

U.S. Marine Sgt. Daniel Seo was wounded while serving in Iraq in 2006. He has received numerous awards for his bravery, including the Purple Heart.

Seo has already given so much for this country, but today he received a new start with a mortgage-free home, thanks to the Home for Wounded Warriors program.

"You know, we've always dreamed of owning a home, it was just a matter of when. This is a clean slate, we can start new," Seo said.

Any combat-wounded veteran who does not currently have a mortgage and is retired or honorably separated from the military can apply online.

The program also provides financial education courses to ensure the veteran maintains his or her home.

"I got a home, I'm grateful for it," Seo said. "It's like a dream come true."

A move from L.A. to Peoria totally was worth it for this soldier.

"I couldn't have asked for anything more," he said.
