Blinded Veteran From Fargo-Moorhead Receives Key To New Home
MOORHEAD (AP) - A Minnesota veteran who lost his sight after roadside bomb exploded while he was serving in Iraq has a new home.
The Homes For Our Troops group gave Eric Marts the key for a new house during a ceremony Saturday in Moorhead. Marts and his wife, Bobbie, had been living in trailer park along with Eric's guide dog, Deacon.
Marts has a radio show in Fargo that is dedicated to improving the lives of veterans.
Marts was a guest of Sen. Heidi Heitkamp from North Dakota during the State of the Union address in 2014. Heitkamp says that Marts is ``humble beyond belief'' and nobody is more deserving of a new house.
