THE WOODLANDS, Texas -- A soldier who lost his legs in Iraq has learned he has an entire community to lean on.

Captain Will Lyles joined former General Tommy Franks and members of the Helping a Hero organization to break ground on his new home in The Woodlands.

The Woodlands Development Company donated the lot. Chesmar Homes is building the house.

It's an amazing feeling, Capt. Lyles said.

Captain Lyles is currently taking classes to prepare for medical school. He says he wants to be a doctor so he can help others.
