Kerns was escorted into his new home by a Navy Seal. Kerns, a Patrick County native, served as a combat engineer in the U.S. Marine Corps and was on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan when he lost three limbs and sustained severe injuries from an improvised explosive device in 2011. On Tuesday, three years after he was welcomed back to Ararat, Kerns was presented the keys to his home and an iPad which operates the house's special systems. The Gary Sinise Foundation and the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation have developed the "Building for America's Bravest" Program to give independence back to military service people wounded in battle.Photos by Tom Bishop 10/1/14
