Veterans have served our great country and risked their lives every day to fight for our freedom. Although there is never enough that we can do to thank them, Veterans United Home Loans is doing what they can.
They have recently teamed up with actor, comedian and retired U.S. Marine Rob Riggle, to launch a national campaign to recognize veterans and their service by surprising them with mortgage-free homes.
The lending company, which is based out of Missouri, and its charity foundation have since surprised ten different deserving veterans with new houses.
“Our #ThanksToVeterans campaign underscores the daily commitment of veterans as local leaders, dedicated volunteers, and exemplary neighbors,” said Pam Swan, vice president of military relations for Veterans United Home Loans and a military spouse. “And what better way to thank these deserving individuals than by giving them houses of their very own in the communities they call home?”
The past winners include a single widowed mother of three and a Vietnam veteran who was in need of a wheelchair-accessible home.
Army veteran Daniel tried to buy a house for years, but with Veterans United Home Loans, he finally has a home to call his own. You can see his heartwarming reaction in the video below.
“We hope, through shining a light on their stories, we inspire folks across the country to show Veterans just how much they mean to our communities,” Riggle said.
They will still be picking one more winner, and veterans can still enter for a chance to win the 11th home at ThanksToVeterans.com.
