Country Music Star Gives Veterans Mortgage-Free Homes

Have you heard about country music star Tim McGraw giving military veterans mortgage-free homes while he's been out on his 2015 Shotgun Rider Tour? So far this year Tim McGraw has already given six mortgage-free homes to U.S. veterans. And before his tour ends in the fall, he plans on giving away even more homes to help out our U.S. military veterans.

Tim McGraw isn't the only country music star to be in the news recently for helping veterans with a new home. Military news blog BuiltUSA shared a story about Darius Rucker giving away a mortgage-free home to an Army veteran as well.

We love reporting good veterans news like this one. In fact, over the last week we've been able to report on the continuing decline of veterans unemployment rates and a new VA program which helps homeless veterans find full-time employment which is leading to them also finding a place to call home.

Tim McGraw Teams Up with Operation Homefront

How many mortgage-free homes will Tim McGraw, along with Operation Homefront, provide to veterans? According to news reports, McGraw will provide a total of 36 homes free of charge to military veterans. He still has 30 stops left on his 2015 Shotgun Rider Tour, so he'll be giving one house away at each of the remaining stops.

"For them to be able to come back and have that same sort of security for their little girls and their little boys and their wives, and to be able to have a home that is secure and safe is something that really hit home for me," McGraw said.

And this isn't the first time McGraw has shown his appreciation for our U.S. military veterans by giving away mortgage-free homes. According to the country music star's website, McGraw has given away over 100 homes.

my name is Sherry Akines. My son Jeremy Young was shot 12 times while serving in Afghanistan on July 3,2012. He is such an inspiration to everyone .. He doesn’t let any of his injuries stop him.
He has bought a home, but I as a mother would love to see him have a home that was mortgage free. He has sacrificed so much and never asks for anything in return.. If he were able he would go back and do it all over again.
Sincerely ,
Sherry Akines

I have been engaged to my fiancé David Kaczmarek for 1 year now.. He has been trying to buy a house for us.. He has done 2 tours and was in the Marines and the Army.. This man has such a big heart and so loving.. In October 2014 he was diagnosed with Parkinsons.. He is 44 and is handling it very well.. Do to this he had to give up his job that he loved so much and is adjusting to being home.. For them few reasons we have had to hold off on a house and our marriage.. God Bless Tim McGraw for his kindness and understanding for the Veterans and their families…

Being a retired military family has put a very big strain on our family. We have 4 kids and 1 granddaughter that we give everything we can give. We have been able to get ahead and stay ahead due to 22 years of military housing life. Not being use to the economic difference. We are renting a home that is very old and needs alot of work…we love the home and have been given the option to purchase,however we my husband’s retirement pay is stretched between bills and basic living costs. I work sometimes 15 hour days to help make ends meet. We would be greatful for the help.

Since Katrina hit, we’ve needed everything to exist. House still needs to be finished. If he’d like to pay off my debts, I wouldn’t say no. I have a perfectly good double wide, that withstood Katrina, but the inside suffered from water. So we gutted her and started over. Ran out of $. And that is that. Hubby is a 25 year veteran of the Seabees.

My husband has done 5 tours to the middle east,he’s been in for the past 37 years hoping to make it to 40, he’s been home since last November and having a hard time finding a job,don’t get me wrong he’s done nothing but looking,but sometimes it get him down,but he’s not a quiter and I have no doubt he’ll find a job.. I’m very proud to be a Army wife and I stand beside my husband and my Army family… I do work 2 jobs … I would love to find a way to take the stress off my husband and have our martgage paid off would be great,but just to have it paid down would be awesome.. My husband is a very proud man and would not like me putting our problems out there,but I would do anything to help my husband.. God Bless our Country and USA… Have a blessed 4th of July….

I lost about 15 pounds within the first 6 weeks of my new eating and working out plan. Except I already stood a slice
so I’m looking to target the whole picture. Everything sounds simple
thus far, but it is not because how do you know the calories you are consuming.
