Myrna Segy won the home on Kensington Circle through a giveaway Bank of America and Nehemiah Corporation hosted.
To apply, Central Georgia veterans wrote essays about their time in service and how getting the house would help their family.
Segy joined the Air Force in 2001 at age 18 and worked in security forces.
"When 9/11 occured, I was actually chosen to give security to the president when he came to our base in Louisiana. After that I got sent to Turkey," Segy said.
Segy was also deployed to Iraq.
She left the military in 2004 due to illness.
"I developed Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis and I've been dealing with PTSD," she said, "I worked in the armory on an international base so, you're on call all the time. I obviously couldn't respond as well, so I had to leave the military."
