Wounded war veteran receives new home from nonprofit, Kid Rock


A wounded war veteran and his wife looking for a new house in Michigan were in for a surprise when they walked into a model home and found their friends, family and musician Kid Rock waiting inside.

The Grammy-nominated rocker, along with nonprofit Operation Finally Home and representatives from Pulte Homes, presented Sgt. Davin Dumar and his wife Dana with a mortgage-free 2,600-square-foot property that will be finished by the end of 2012, The Oakland Press reports.

“First of all, welcome home,” Rock said. “You are going to receive a fully-furnished home, top to bottom. Thank you for your service.”

Operation Finally Home is a nonprofit that builds homes for wounded war veterans returning from service. The organization has built 50 homes in 11 states over a period of seven years, the Detroit News reports.

“I don’t know what to say other than shock and amazement,” Dumar, who lost a leg to amputation after being injured in a 2011 attack in Afghanistan, told the Oakland Press.

Kid Rock met the nonprofit’s founder at a past event and suggested he provide homes for injured troops from Michigan.

The construction costs of the Dumars’ new home, to be built in Macomb, will be donated by Pulte Homes.

Glad to see "entertainers" stepping up and helping the real heroes in this country. Semper Fi.


Awww how wonderful :D


At least in these wars, the private sector is handleing a large part of the load.
It seems that the VA, seems to what to spend money on parties of them selves,
instead of wounded warriors. The government might want to stand behind the military
but always falls short. God bless the nonprofit private organization, the American
people at their finest.


AWESOME!!!!! The private sector has and always will step up to the plate as much as they can... We, John Q Public need to also add some of our time & muscle to help....We don't always have to give money... most times giving of ones self means so much more! Thank you Pulte and Kid Rock for standing up... You hit it over the fence this time.....

It was Legnano-based Franco Tosi's company that convinced the engineers of the Technical Office for the Construction of the Council Electric Plant to change their mind about what production system was to be used in the plant.
