Army Sergeant Nickolas Shults will be presented with the ceremonial deed, to his mortgage-free home located in Gulfport, Miss.

Sergeant Shults joined the U.S. Army in 2003 and within the same year, he was deployed to Iraq. Within 7 months after he arrived his camp was hit by an IED. He was awarded the Purple Heart for being wounded while supporting combat operations. Despite being wounded in combat, he rejoined his unit to continue the fight and was redeployed 2 additional times in support of the Global War on Terror.
