Six days before he was supposed to go home, Sgt. Jackie Irving was injured in an explosion. He died six times that day, and was determined as 'Killed In Action'. Miraculously, he "took a deep breath and came back to life." His devastating injuries presented a long and hard road to recovery, with over 30 surgeries on the horizon. When Operation FINALLY HOME heard of Jackie's story, they teamed up with Southern Living to give the Irving family a safe, peaceful place for Jackie to recover – mortgage-free.
