It was a tearful day for a wounded war veteran and his family in Celina. But the tears on Monday were from the joy of moving into a new home that they couldn’t have afforded without the help of others.
The town of Celina has come to the aid of a soldier who sustained horrifying burns but survived a suicide bombing in Afghanistan. The wounded veteran was even able to help break ground on the new home being built for him.
Marine Corporal Zach Briseno can’t always wear his prosthetic legs, making it tough to maneuver his small Fort Worth apartment. A Houston nonprofit changed that, and now he’s landed in a new four-bedroom home.
