Lee County Army veteran and family receive new mortgage free home

LEE COUNTY, AL (WTVM) - A veteran and his family in Lee County, Alabama received the keys to their brand new custom-built home on Wednesday.

U.S. Army Sgt. Adam Lee and his family were given the mortgage-free home courtesy of Operation Finally Home, Dillworth Development, and the Auburn community as appreciation for his service and work to help other veterans.

The Lee family was surprised with the news of their new home last October at the Mississippi/Auburn football game. The community also wrote 'notes of love' on the studs of their home earlier this year before they were wrapped in drywall.

The Lee's home is the 146th home built mortgage free by Operation Finally Home.
