ROUND ROCK, Texas (KXAN) – On Tuesday, a local veteran injured while serving in Iraq received the gift of a lifetime: a home.
Army Sgt. Pedro Ramos received the keys to his brand new home in Round Rock – and it’s mortgage free.
It is thanks to the non-profit “building houses for heroes”. Since 2006, more than 250 homes have been made available to veterans and their families.
Ramos was injured during his deployment, so the organization changed the house to suit his needs.
His wife and three children were there for the great gift.
