'Helping a Hero' organization awards new house to wounded veteran in Houston

HOUSTON – A local organization is opening new doors for a wounded veteran in Houston.

Sgt. Daniel Cowart lost his left leg to a suicide bomber in Iraq during his time serving in the Iraq War.

To honor his great sacrifice for our freedom, the Houston-based nonprofit "Helping a Hero" awarded him with a new house.

Cowart said this gift helps keep his mind positive and press through the challenges.

Country music legend Lee Greenwood attended the event to show support for Houston’s local hero.
