If you’d asked, four-year-old Matthew Hutcheson would have told you that he wanted to be a paratrooper. He fulfilled his lifelong dream as a member of the U.S. Army, but while on an airborne mission, Sgt. Hutcheson was injured and suffered three traumatic brain injuries. This was in addition to previous injuries he sustained while deployed with the U.S. Army. While in the hospital, Sgt. Hutcheson met his wife, Leslie, an Army medic assisting in his recovery. The Hutchesons’ home wasn’t equipped to help with Sgt. Hutcheson’s recovery, so Operation Finally Home stepped in to help and offered to provide the Hutchesons’ with a brand-new home, one suited make their family’s life easier. Watch the Hutcheson family’s emotional journey as they receive their new mortgage-free home, the place where they will raise their children and meet their future grandchildren.
