Kid Rock Presents Wounded Warrior With New Michigan Home
Kid Rock's generosity knows no bounds, especially when it comes to his hometown of Detroit and by extension his home state of Michigan. The rocker's good will was on display again recently when he teamed with Pulte Homes and Operation Finally Home to have a new home built for a returning "wounded warrior" and his family.
MLive.com reports that Sgt. Davin Dumar, an Army vet who lost his left leg and injured his arm after an improvised explosive device went off, first learned that his family was in the running for a new home last fall. According to a CNN report (seen below), Dumar and his wife were one of a handful of couples under consideration for the home, having undergone a series of interviews to be chosen.
The couple was on their way to a model home, presumably for one final interview, when they were greeted by Rock and representatives from Pulte Homes and Operation Finally Home who were there to share the news that they had been selected and to show them the designs of their new home.
Rock stated, "My heart is pumping just to be part of it. Just to work with Dan [from Operation Finally Home] to make it happen for someone like Sgt. Dumar here, so deserving." For his part, Dumar shared his shock at the events of the day, adding, "I'm completely surprised. I certainly didn't think I'd be having a cigar with Kid Rock today."
MLive reports that after construction started late last year, the couple recently moved into their Macomb Township home.
