U.S. Navy veteran receives new mortgage-free home in Columbus

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - A U.S. Navy veteran received a gift of a lifetime on Thursday.

Wallace D. Ray Jr. was given the keys to a new mortgage-free home in Columbus, all thanks to the Veterans Association of Real Estate Professionals and Bank of America.

Bank of America has donated more than 2,300 homes to military veterans’ nonprofit organizations who then provide the home to a military veteran and their family.

Ray served in the Navy from 1981 to 1987.
