NEW JERSEY (KGO) -- One of the Bay Area's biggest sports stars played a pivotal role in welcoming a disabled Navy veteran to his brand new, donated home in New Jersey.

ABC's "The View" teamed up with the non-profit Homes For Our Troops to build a new wheelchair accessible house for Petty officer Second Class Tim Birckhead. He suffers from a genetic condition that has made him unable to walk.
