The cameras also caught up with a United States Marine Corps Veteran and Purple Heart recipient, who was awarded his home in February 2012 to discuss what the foundation has done for them.

The Military Warriors Support Foundation (MWSF) has been awarding mortgage-free homes since 2010 and to date has donated 538 homes in 43 states. The homes are fully renovated and accommodated for injuries or unique circumstances received in combat while serving our country. The wounded heroes also receive three years of family and financial mentoring, to ensure they have all the skills necessary to be happy and successful home owners. There are currently 426 families actively participating in the Financial and Family Mentoring Program. For more information on MWSF and all of their programs, please visit
