COLUMBIA, Tenn. (AP) -- Shaun Meadows knows how to make an entrance.
The wounded warrior and a skydiving team parachuted onto the front lawn of Meadows' new home in Lynnville on Thursday for a dedication ceremony.
Meadows, along with his wife and son, were presented with keys to the home provided by Operation Finally Home, a nonprofit organization that donates new, mortgage-free homes to wounded and disabled veterans.
Meadows told The Daily Herald of Columbia that he's grateful for the 3,500 square-foot home, because he wasn't sure how he would provide for his family after a 2008 explosion in Afghanistan left the Air Force special forces veteran without his legs.
He says providing a home for his family "means more than you can ever know."
