LARKSPUR, Colo. (KRDO) -- A retired Fort Carson veteran received the keys to their brand new home in Larkspur Wednesday.

Retired Sgt. William "Jaye" VanBoening was a Motor Transportation Operator stationed at Fort Carson, 360th Transportation Company, during his 15-month deployment to Iraq. He also served two tours in Afghanistan before being honorably discharged in 2014.
