Smart Home Breaks Ground with HEB and Operation FINALLY HOME
(January 29, 2015—NEW BRAUNFELS) SouthStar Communities, Operation FINALLY HOME and HEB broke ground today on a one-of-a-kind, custom-built, mortgage-free Smart Home for U.S. Army Specialist Michael Crawford in the developer’s Vintage Oaks neighborhood. The 23-year-old veteran was wounded in 2011 while serving in Afghanistan when an improvised explosive device (IED) struck the truck he was in during combat. Crawford’s injuries left him paralyzed completely in his right leg and with minimal movement in his left leg.
“We are honored to have Specialist Crawford as a resident in Vintage Oaks and we thank him for his sacrificial service to our country,” said Thad Rutherford, Chief Operation Officer of SouthStar Communities, the developer of Vintage Oaks. “This is the fourth Operation FINALLY HOME veteran home in Vintage Oaks and we can’t wait to have another hero as a neighbor in our community.”
