WAUKESHA -- A Waukesha area veteran and his family got a pretty wonderful gift Saturday -- a brand new, custom home.

U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Joe Davis served our country for 11 years until he had to medically retire after being diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. Doctor’s linked it to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

"This really turned out amazing," Davis said while getting the first tour of his new home.

The veteran did three tours to the Middle East.

"I planned on doing 20 years and getting out and being a police officer, that's what my plan was but that kind of changed," he said.

Operation FINALLY HOME and Belman Homes teamed up to help make this dream one-story four bedroom home come true for the family of four.

"It's overwhelming in a good way," said Davis’ wife Carissa

Operation FINALLY HOME provides free houses to hundreds of wounded or ill veterans across the country.

This new home gives the Davis family a fresh start as its custom made and handicap accessible, they’re thankful.

"The kitchen is awesome, it's huge, I love to bake so that's a big thing," Carissa said.

Belman Homes began building the home in the summer of 2017. The Davis has officially moved in.
