A non-profit charity is helping wounded US veterans start a new chapter in life, building new homes for those who have suffered severe injury during their time in service.

So far, the Homes for Our Troops organization has built 278 homes for injured veterans nationwide, according to the organization’s website.

The charity recently built and gave a new home to one Oklahoma soldier.

KOCO-TV reports Army Specialist Adam Putt was serving as a rifleman with the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Infantry, 3rd Stryker Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division, when he lost both legs on Aug. 2, 2007, in an improvised explosive device blast.

Putt’s new home contains more than 40 major special adaptations, including widened doorways for wheelchair access, a roll-in shower and kitchen amenities that include pull-down shelving and lowered countertops, according to the charity’s officials.
