Cpl. Nathan Jakubisin and family chosen to receive mortgage-free home

FUQUAY-VARINA, N.C. -- A North Carolina community is showing its support for a wounded Marine and Cambridge, Ohio native by building a house for him and his family.

Marine Cpl. Nathan Jakubisin, who now lives in Fuquay-Varina, N.C., was selected to receive a newly-built, mortgage-free home from Operation Coming Home. WNCN-TV in Raleigh, N.C. reports that, on Wednesday, local contractors and community members wrote "notes of love" on the frame of the house to show appreciation for his service. The messages were written on beams in the attic, which will stay exposed so Jakubisin and his family can read them whenever they want.

Jakubisin said that he, his wife Marli and their son Mason are eternally grateful for the gift and support from the community:

Jakubisin graduated boot camp in 2011 as a combat engineer and was deployed to Afghanistan in January 2012. He suffered severe leg and hand injuries from an improvised explosive device while conducting patrols in the Helmand Province. He has since been awarded the Purple Heart.
