Military Veteran Receives Mortgage-Free Home: A Collaboration of U.S. Bank, Freedom Alliance, and True Homes


Recently, a collaboration between U.S. Bank, Freedom Alliance, and True Homes resulted in a remarkable gesture of gratitude towards a military veteran. Private Second Class Roy Garcia of the U.S. Army, along with his family, were the proud recipients of a mortgage-free home in Monroe, North Carolina. Garcia had joined the Army as an infantryman in 2008 and was deployed to one of Afghanistan’s most perilous regions, Kunar Province, two years later.

Tom Kilgannon, the president of Freedom Alliance, acknowledged Garcia’s service and sacrifice for the country. He noted that many veterans like Garcia grapple with the physical and emotional aftermath of war. The provision of this home is expected to aid Garcia in supporting his family and concentrating on his recovery.

Since 2013, U.S. Bank and Freedom Alliance have collectively donated 25 homes, amounting to a total value of $5.75 million.
