Central Texas veteran gets mortgage-free home
A Central Texas veteran is now enjoying his new home.
'Operation Finally Home' helped build Army Sgt. Jason Castille and his family the mortgage-free home in Elgin.
Several combat injuries in Iraq left Sgt. Castille facing a life-time of recovery. The custom-built home is specially designed to meet his needs.
The Castilles got to see the finished product for the first time Friday.
"Darkness may last for a night, but joy comes in the morning, and this is just a joyful day today, and I'm so thankful," Sgt. Castille said.
Neighbors left now-hidden messages inside the home back in April. During a "notes of love" event, they wrote inspirational words of support on the studs during construction.
