USMC Corporal Joshua Brubaker and his family received the keys to his new home Thursday. But not just any home, a smart home specifically designed for his needs as a double amputee.

Brubaker lost both his legs while overseas in Afghanistan in 2012.

The new house is equipped with an iPad that has control feature for the entire house, easier accessibility in the kitchen, wider hallways and much more. 

All made possible through the Gary Sinise Foundation that builds homes for wounded veterans and the generosity of donors.
