Homes for Heroes provides keys to Lubbock veterans new home
LUBBOCK, Texas -
West Texas Hero Homes provides a wounded warrior the keys to his new home.
Michael Vasquez served in the army and deployed in Afghanistan when his vehicle was struck by an RPG. He suffered brain and spinal injuries, along with a host of shrapnel wounds that required a host of surgeries and put him in a wheelchair.
The home is mortgage free and tailored to his needs. Vasquez said this helps show how Lubbock supports its veterans.
"It's expected, you know. It's not like a big city where, you know, you have totally divided, two sides of the street, where's there pro and anti. Lubbock's, you know, pro military. And so, I mean, it's definitely a blessing to live here."
