“It is an honor for our Pulte team, along with the support of our trade partners and suppliers, to build this home for Sergeant Murray, as a way to express our gratitude for his service to our country,” said Bryan Swindell, President of PulteGroup’s Dallas division. “We warmly welcome the Murray family to the next chapter of their lives, with a home that meets their needs where they will create wonderful new memories together.”
Built specifically for the Murray family, the 4 bedroom, 3 bath single-family home is 2800-square feet and fully furnished. The home was awarded through PulteGroup’s Built to Honor program in partnership with Building Homes for Heroes.
This year, the Built to Honor program expects to award ten mortgage-free homes nationwide. To date, the program has provided more than 60 homes to deserving veterans and their families.
