(Milton, Del)- Operation Finally Home helps the returning heroes who served in the military and their families with a home. The organization helps families across the country and they are assisting Shaun O' Brien and his family. They have teamed up with the Lewes Building Company to provide a home at Red Fox run in Milton.On Friday many of the community wrote and stapled notes across the unfinished house for the family.

O'Brien said the messages that have come locally and the way from Oklahoma are absolutely incredible.

"But I have fighting back emotions the whole morning and it is great to see the outpouring of support," said O'Brien.

The Operation Finally Home Director Rusty Carroll and the Lewes Building Company have awarded a custom built a mortgage-free house to O'Brien and his family.

"You really start to see the transformation of the family because they start to know that the financial burden is off their shoulders," said Carroll.

O'Brien is pleased with the progress that has been made in two months.

"This is great to see and this more than we could have ever asked for and to be able to do the walk through and see the bedroom, closet and to see they are putting in fireplace now is something special," said O'Brien.

The family will be able to move in the house at the beginning of May.
