An Oklahoma soldier and his family have a new place to call home.

Joey Dixon was awarded the Purple Heart for his service in Afghanistan.

Thursday, he and his wife received the keys to their brand new home in Broken Arrow, thanks to a neighborhood revitalization program.

Nationwide, 1,000 homes have been donated.
