A New Home for A Wounded Warrior

SAVANNAH, GA -

There is no place like home, but for many wounded warriors coming back from war-- home is not as comfortable as it once was.

That's where Operation Hero House comes in.

"Lamar Smith Signature Homes" announced a new program to make the life of one wounded service member a little easier. The wounded warrior will receive a brand new home, retrofitted just for them to fit their new needs. Lamar Smith has been building homes in our area for more than 20 years, and this is their way of saying ‘thank you' to all who serve.

"We are all excited that our soldiers are coming home but a lot of them are coming home with no home to go back to because their needs have changed because they have been wounded,' says David Hagan.

"Some of them have physical scars, others have emotional scars. We can't do everything, but we can do something, and that is what Operation Hero House is all about."

The groundbreaking of Operation Hero House will take place in July of this year. The special soldier will be chosen by an outside committee.
