A U.S. Army veteran and his family received a brand new, fully-furnished home in Tennesse courtesy of the PulteGroup’s Built to Honor Program.
The Atlanta-based PulteGroup said in a press release that Army Veteran Christopher Lewis and his family were handed the keys to their mortgage-free Rucker Landing home in Murfreesboro last month during a dedication ceremony in partnership with the nonprofit Building Homes for Heroes. The PulteGroup’s “interior design team and generous support of its vendors” furnished the five-bedroom, three-bathroom home.
“This is above and beyond. I don’t view myself in a heroic way,” Lewis said, later adding, “I am here because of the real heroes in Arlington right now.”
Lewis is medically retired after serving as a specialist in the Army and “is the fifth generation of his family to enlist in the military,” the Murfreesboro Post reported. He spent a decade as a soldier and was deployed to Iraq, where a bombing left him with a brain injury.
Mindy Miller, a country musician, sang the “Star-Spangled Banner,” and in a Facebook post the day before the dedication, she noted how honored she was to be a part of the ceremony for the Lewis family. After the parade and the National Anthem, the Army veteran was given the keys to his family’s new house.
“To the volunteers, to Pulte, to Building Homes for Heroes, to anyone who has put even a second into this home, it means the world to all of us, it means so much to us,” Lewis said. “The love, the attention to detail, everything has been thought about here and it shows.”
She added that Pulte Group hopes “this home provides a happy, comfortable retreat for Specialist Lewis, his wife Kayla and their three children as they embark on this new chapter of their lives together.”
