Sanford's W. 25th St. was partially shut down on Friday afternoon and dozens welcomed Sgt. Jackie Irving home.

Irving hasn't just returned from a tour of duty, as he's already done his time overseas. He and his family are literally coming home to a brand new custom-built house. "My family is happy, my kids are in there somewhere right now going crazy. I'm happy, they're happy and I'm grateful for what's been done for us," Irving said.

Retired from the Army, Irving did tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan and in 2012, he suffered serious injuries from the blast of an improvised explosive device, including a brain injury.

He is also still dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
