Disabled veteran gets new home

U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Alex Dillman is hugged Thursday by his wife, Holly, at a ceremony in which Homes For Our Troops gave the Dillmans the key to their new home in New Tampa. Dillman was left paralyzed by an IED blast in Kandahar Province in Afghanistan on Feb. 27, 2011, while on his second deployment. Homes For Our Troops is a nonprofit that aims to provide free housing to veterans who were injured since the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. Right: Kimberly Gray talks with Dillman, her son-in-law, as he views his completed home in New Tampa. With Gray is Dillman's dog, a dachshund named Panzerfaust.
