CYPRESS, Texas -

Four years ago, one wounded Texas war veteran survived an attack in Afghanistan that could have taken his life.

On Wednesday, he was honored in Town Lake and received a new home.

It's the fourth anniversary of Marine Corporal Raul Olivares' "Alive Day."

In honor of the anniversary, former Houston Astros pitcher Roger Clemens, Helping a Hero, Town Lake and Chesmar Homes gave a new home to Olivares and his family.

"It's these organizations full of great people that go the extra mile," said Olivares. "They make it happen, it's a dream come true."

Town Lake is also accepting donations at the welcome center for the Olivares family to buy furnishings to complete their new home
