An Army couple living on the nearby base at Ft. Campbell received the surprise of a lifetime when they received orders to move.

On Friday, Army Specialist Brad Wilson, wife Lisa and their three children learned they has been selected to receive a new home in Nashville.

The gift is provided by Mahindra USA, a major tractor company that teamed up with Operation Finally Home, a non-profit that focuses on helping American service members severely wounded in the line of duty.

“It's a big surprise. Life changing,” Lisa Wilson told News 2. “It's going to improve our life. I'm just humbled by their generosity. I can't believe they picked us. I had no idea.”  

“SPC Wilson was selected to receive a home both in recognition of his service and sacrifice to the United States and the proven and recognizable efforts of he and his family to improve their difficult situation,” added Rusty Carroll, Vice President, Operation Finally Home.
