TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

An injured veteran will get the keys to a new home here in Tucson today.  The best part is it's mortgage free. This is all thanks to US Bank and Freedom Alliance and Five Brothers who are donating the home.

Representatives from all organizations will be there to hand over the keys at 10 a.m. this morning. 

Sgt. Paul Kelly served in the U.S. Army National Guard as a logistical task officer, but is now medically retired.  He was severely injured in an accident while deployed to Kuwait and is dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder from it.

He and his family are moving to Tucson from Nevada, this is so he can receive the treatment he needs at the VA hospital here.
