Saturday Staff Sergeant Ross Cox and his family was presented a brand new home free of charge. This gesture is welcomed by the Cox family. They've been moving consistently for 12 years.
The Cox family was chosen to be given the house through the "Operation Finally Home." SSG Cox is a veteran, but he said he's was just doing his job.
"I don't think of myself as a hero or that I did anything extraordinary. the guys that don't come home those are the heroes," said Cox.
Permian Homes President David Martin said, "Every one of our trade partners not only said they would be on board, they gave their finest."
Cox lost his leg last year after stepping on a roadside bomb in Afghanistan.
When speaking of a conversation had with his wife Nicole Cox, he said "I told her before I left on my last deployment that I probably wasn't gonna come home and that I would die, and that's just felt something bad was gonna happen."
The Mr. and Mrs. Cox are both originally from Amarillo and with the move to Odessa they will be close to family.
Becky Bryant is the Cox children's grandmother. She still lives in Amarillo and joking plans to visit often.
She said, "We don't have to plan ahead now. They may wish that hadn't happened."
While Bryant plans to make trips often, Cox is content with where they are.
"We're close to home, but not too close...Amen that's right," said Cox.
Meantime, they're appreciative and happy that they are indeed finally home.
