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.
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.
