Mark: "We're Mark and Alicia Little. I was only deployed one time in my military career and that was to Iraq. On September 7, 2007, boom, explosion, and I realized my legs were gone."

Mark, a Captain who lost both his legs, didn't let his injury hold him back though. According to NBC, he instead made it his mission to help others after he came home, by starting a non-profit called Warrior 360. It's mission is to help Veterans and wounded service members in any capacity they need.

John and Anthony, and Ellen DeGerenes, were inspired by Mark's story and decided to pay it forward.
When Mark saw his new home, he was speechless for a moment. "Oh my gosh, this is stunning. Unbelievably stunning," he said as he laughed in disbelief.

The couple called the home gorgeous and phenomenal. The guys put brand new flooring through the entire space and built a custom shuffleboard table with the help of Mark's friends. They also framed the 400 coins that were given to Mark while he was in the military for accommodation and respect; one was even from the President.

But that wasn't all. The cousins also remodeled the bedroom and bathroom and turned the back room of the house into a resting area and spa, hot tub included.

As Broadway World notes, the cousins have collaborated more than once with Ellen's team to help deserving families. The premise of this show is to help communities say thank you to hometown heroes.
