That’s right, James Hilyard was surprised with a house. The war veteran says this is a big change for him.

“I’ve spent the last 10 years in the deserts of Iraq, Kuwait, and the Fort Bliss area. To come and see the welcoming outside of the home is fantastic,” said Hilyard.

The United States Army Sergeant cleared roadside bomb and explosives. Many of his peers did not survive.

“In March 25, 2007, we were hit by an explosion and we lost the driver that day. We had a 3% chance of surviving”, continues Hilyard.

This project was completed in collaboration with the non profit organization Military Warriors Support Foundation and a bank partner, mortgage-free.

“We want to be sure that when the houses are complete, the veterans don’t have to worry about anything for 5-10 years.) commends Ryan McDonald of Property Masters.

With one thing less to worry about, Hilyard plans to attend college and obtain a business degree.

His wife and daughters still have not seen the house as they’re still in El Paso, TX, but Hilyard says they’re in for a big surprise.
