Southstar Communities is pleased to announce our participation in Operation FINALLY HOME, an organization that honors wounded and disabled veterans as well as widows of fallen soldiers with new homes. Please join us for a celebration ceremony with leaders from the city of Gunter to honor two veterans and their families who will receive an estate lot at The Bridges at Preston Crossings and a new home designed by RDGS Architects and built by Classic Custom Homes.

The first two families to be honored include war heroes Sergeant First Class Alan Hornaday and his wife, Sheila, as well as Sergeant Levi Wilson, Jr. and his wife, Katie.
