Housing Our Nation’s Heroes
War is hell, but coming home shouldn’t be. That is why
the Dallas Builders Association has partnered with
Operation Finally Home to build mortgage-free homes
for wounded veterans of our nation’s armed forces.
Association leaders have promised that the partnership
is a long-term mutual mission that will continue so long
as there are wounded heroes in need of housing. “Just
as our nation’s troops served us, we now must serve
Operation Finally Home supporters from the Dallas BA
support to projects that build the American Dream
for deserving veterans who are in the business of
protecting and defending it.
Last year, the Association and its members completed
two projects for combat wounded veterans in Little Elm
and Cedar Hill. The Association began two additional
homes in 2015. Michael Turner with Classic Urban
Homes will construct one in Oak Point. The second
project is located in Rockwall and is led by Mike
Mishler of Mishler Builders. Recipient of this home is Sgt.
1st Class Jerry Holcomb and his family. Sgt. Holcomb
suffered traumatic brain and other injuries after three
deployments in Korea, Iraq and Afghanistan.
