Craig Morgan Surprises Veteran With Mortgage-Free Home
This holiday season, Craig Morgan has gifted a veteran and his family the present of a lifetime: a mortgage-free home. Unbeknownst to U.S. Army SSG Justin Raymer, he and his family attended Morgan's American Stories concert on Nov. 19 thinking it was because he is a veteran.
Raymer's father explained to him that Morgan was looking for veterans to attend the concert at Wagon Wheel Theatre. Three songs into the set, though, Justin and his wife Kaci were invited to the stage. They then got the surprising news that they would be receiving a new house.
“I have been gone for 15 years,” Raymer says in a press release. “It means a lot to finally come home and bring our entire family together.”
The Raymer family home was built by several organizations, including Operation Finally Home, R.W. Kidd and the Builders and the Builders Association of Kosciusko Fulton Counties.
“We are so grateful for this unique opportunity to honor and give back to U.S. Army SSG Raymer and his family and we look forward to welcoming them home next September,” says Trisha Steger, Executive Officer, Builders Association of Kosciusko Fulton Counties.
Operation Finally HomeExecutive Director Rusty Carroll adds that their company is "blessed" to make a dream come true for the Raymer family, saying, "Justin and Kaci want to raise their children near family and we are blessed to be able to make that dream come true for this deserving veteran."
