Homes for Heroes House to be Presented Tuesday
A hometown hero will receive a new house tomorrow.
Army Specialist Louis Flores and his family will be presented with their completed and furnished mortgage-free home, which is being featured in the 2012 Parade of Homes.
The ceremony will be held Tuesday, June 5th at 11 a.m., located at 6405 77th Street in the Bacon Crest subdivision.
The home was built by Lubbock Homes for Heroes, in partnership with the West Texas Home Builders Association and Texas Tech Athletics.
Flores, a Plainview native, was deployed to Northern Iraq where he served as a medic. He was involved in multiple IED explosions, and helped fellow soldiers from IED explosions or civilians in the aftermath of a suicide bomber attack in a public market.
Flores came home and attended Texas Tech, but the trauma he suffered during his service alerted doctors to a moderate brain injury.
