    A U.S. Army veteran is getting the keys to a newly renovated home in Manchester, New Hampshire, that was donated to his family mortgage-free.

    Trevor Leadbeater, who received a Purple Heart after being injured in Afghanistan in 2010, is the latest beneficiary of the Military Warriors Support Foundation, which works with financial institutions to provide housing for those who have served the nation. In Leadebeater's case, the home is being donated by Bank of America, which has donated more than 1,900 homes nationwide to charities that support veterans and other nonprofit groups.

    Leadbeater joined the Army National Guard in Vermont during high school and then transferred to active duty. The married father of two sons plans to finish college and work in the medical field to assist others.
