MERIDIAN -- A military family in the Treasure Valley received the keys to a new, free home today.

Operation Homefront awarded its 100th mortgage-free home to the Woods family.

Sergeant Aaron Woods served almost seven years in the Army National Guard.

Now Sgt. Woods and his wife Jenny attend Boise State University. For two students with a 9-month-old child, this Meridian home means a lot.

Financial security. you know, there's so many great things financially that come with it. but beyond that, you know, just having a nice place to raise our daughter and to continue to grow our family. said Sgt. Aaron Woods.

Operation Homefront is a non-profit organization that gives 94 percent of its revenue to service members, including mortgage-free homes.

The Operation Homefront CEO says it's a small price to pay for the sacrifices made by military families like this one.
