On Wednesday, Army Sgt. First Class Anthony Kenworthy received a mortgage free home in Land O' Lakes.
It's specially designed for his needs as a quadriplegic.
Coming through his new front door for the first time, Kenworthy had every emotion you could think of.
"Just about everything. Sad, happy, excited. I'm really excited to stop renting houses," Kenworthy said.
He finally has a place for him and his family to live comfortably.
Kenworthy was seriously hurt when his truck was hit by an IED overseas in 2014. It left him a quadriplegic.
"When you join the military, you never think about, 'What do I do if I get hurt? What do I do if something really bad happens to me?'"
The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation heard about his story and led efforts to build him a new smart home in Land O' Lakes.
The house is designed for his needs which will be a huge to help him and his family, including specially made kitchens, bathrooms, bedrooms and more.
"I got hurt serving my country. And the country came together to take care of me for it," Kenworthy said.
Tunnels to Towers honors the sacrifice of firefighter Stephen Siller on 9/11. The foundation has now built 85 smart homes for seriously injured veterans.
