Southstar Communities Providing Homes to War Heroes

Bluegreen Senior VP of Operations Stephen Davis, Bluegreen President/CEO Dan Koscher, Katie and Sergeant Levi Wilson, Sergeant First Class Alan Hornaday, Bluegreen Marketing Specialist Kristi Robinson and The Bridges Sales Manager Brenda Kinsey. The two families were presented with the floor plans for their new custom homes to be built in Bluegreen's community, The Bridges at Preston Crossings in Gunter, TX.

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. Sergeant First Class Hornaday is a veteran of the U.S. Army who sustained injuries in Baghdad in 2004 and Sergeant Wilson is a U.S. Army veteran who was also injured in Iraq in early 2008. Southstar Communities will continue this initiative in Spring 2011 when three more veterans and their families will also be honored with lots and new homes at The Bridges.
