Through a partnership with Wells Fargo and the Military Warriors Support Foundation, wounded veteran Cahin Perez was given a mortgage-free home in Tennessee, according to a Stars and Stripes report.

Angela Kruse and Dave Lieske, representatives from Wells Fargo and Military Warriors, respectively, awarded Perez with the keys to his new home.

"I want to, on behalf of Military Warriors, thank you for your service,” Lieske said. “Our mission really is to help combat-wounded heroes transition from the military back to civilian life. We're so honored to be able to present this house to you and we're so glad it worked out."

"This is great, thank you so much," said Perez. 

Perez served in the military for eight years. In 2015, he was involved in an accident at Fort Campbell when the Humvee he was in crashed. It crushed his leg, which had to be amputated.

"Ever since then, I've been trying to push forward and continue on," Perez said.
