In an effort to give back to the brave hero, an army of volunteers helped build a new home for the severely injured marine.

The house was custom-built in Ellington and funded by the Building Homes For Heroes program.

The official dedication will be open to the public at 188 Abbott Rd., Ellington on Saturday, Sept. 28 at 10 a.m.
