Since 2005, the not-for-profit organization has participated in 300 projects for distinguished veterans in 34 states. They have teamed up with Howard Hughes Corp, Perry Homes, the Greater Houston Builders Association and the Houston Texans to bring Stephen Netzley and his daughter Scum to their new home on Friday. …
“Steven was blown up, he was shot at and he did things that we didn’t even know about,” said Lee Kirgan during Operation Finally Home. “The least we can do is pay him off the huge debt we owe him to our country. Stephen really earned this house on the battlefield with his blood. “
For six years of service, the veteran of the army experienced many difficulties. He made two tours of Afghanistan.
“I am definitely grateful to everyone for their support,” he said. “It was an amazing experience and we are very grateful.”
Houston Texans midfielder Jacob Martin with a military background was there to show his support for what he said is close to his heart.
“This is my passion,” he said. “He put his life on the line, I’m sure, countless times. I’m sure he saw things and did things that half of us couldn’t imagine. This is a small price we can pay to show him our gratitude. And his family after such a long absence. “
Each year, Texans participate in Operation Last Home to provide a home for wounded, sick or wounded military veterans, emergency responders, or the widow of the dead and their families in honor of their service and the sacrifices made to the country and the community.
