Veteran gets new home in Yorkville

A retired Marine corporal has a new home in suburban Yorkville, and thanks to a program that helps veterans, he does not have a mortgage.

William Sutton served six years and was injured twice while in Afghanistan. He's back home with a wife and two young children.

Bank of America and the Military Warriors Support Foundation are working together to provide homes to hundreds of vets.

The Suttons had been living with his parents. Just last week, his father died.

"I just look at it as this is something my dad would want me to have to raise my children. I think he's just proud of us. And he's looking down at us smiling, waiting for me to get on the grill," said Sutton.

Sutton and his wife say this was unexpected, but they're very excited and love their new home.
