Burgess said the new home would provide him with stability.
"It helps with employment, education, health care access," he said. "In the military, we move frequently across the globe, across the nation. It's nice to finally put down roots somewhere permanently and truly become a permanent part of the community again."
It will improve his access to health care, he said.
"There's a lot of specialty health care I'd like to obtain," he said. "I'm in Martinsburg, so I'm close to D.C. for that health care.
"But the pressures of supporting my family kind of prohibited me from having the time to access health care options. This will take some of the financial pressures off me."
Burgess has received numerous awards, including the Combat Action Badge, Bronze Star, two Explosive Ordnance Disposal Badges and an Army Commendation Medal.
