A marine who was injured during his tour of duty in Iraq took in three foster children when he returned to the United States. Now his family of seven is receiving a new home.
Staff Sergeant Vince Gizzarelli, of Jacksonville, is getting a new mortgage-free house. Crews will break ground on "Operation Finally Home" Wednesday.
Gizzarelli has been working to recover from a traumatic brain injury from injuries sustained from the war in Iraq. His family has also stepped up to be the guardians of the three Spillman brothers.
The youngest sibling, T.J. Spillman, lost some of his toes in 2009 when a pit bull puppy chewed them off. His parents pleaded guilty to child abuse. The Gizzarelli's are now the boys' legal guardians.
Now the seven members of the household can begin watching their new home being built.
