Marine Sgt. Greg Caron got the keys to his new Ellington home on Saturday, more than a year after volunteers with Building Homes for Heroes began construction.
On Nov. 12, 2011, Caron was severely wounded by an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan. He lost both of his legs and suffered a severe wound to his right arm.
Building Homes for Heroes is committed to supporting the brave men and women of the military who have returned home from the wars in Iraq or Afghanistan with severe wounds and disabilities, with a goal to build homes for families in dire need.
