NASHVILLE, Tenn.- A Fort Campbell solider got a surprise at the Titans game Sunday that left him speechless.  Army Corporal Christopher Bales was not only presented with an honorary football, but learned he will be the recipient of a new home.

The announcement came on the big screen courtesy of country music star Kix Brooks and the Operation Finally Home organization. The group will build six homes across the country for wounded veterans.

Bales said it was an unexpected honor that means a lot.

"It's just pretty overwhelming. I really wasn't expecting that, so, it's really overwhelming," said Bales. "It's very nice when people show their appreciation. So, I think it's really huge."

Bales's home will be built starting in January 2013.  It will take about a year to complete the project.
