Helping a Hero: a New Home for a Wounded Warrior

Lt. Governor Dan Forest Opens Nominations for a Home to be Awarded to a Wounded Warrior Fayetteville, NC--Lieutenant Governor Dan Forest is scheduled to attend the opening of nominations for HelpingAHero.org’s Home for a Wounded Warrior at McKee Homes in Fayetteville on February 19 at 10:30am.


When: Wednesday, February 19, 2014 10:30 AM

Where: McKee Homes 101 Hay St. Fayetteville, NC


  • The Honorable Dan Forest—Lt. Governor of North Carolina
  • Miss North Carolina USA Olivia Olvera

  • John Lincoln—Legacy Lakes Community/Mountain Real Estate Capital Joe Cebina—Legacy Lakes Community/LStar Management

Lt. Governor Dan Forest will be joined by Miss North Carolina Olivia Olvera and several wounded warriors to open nominations for a home to be awarded to a warrior wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan. The event is being hosted by HelpingaHero.org. The 501(c)(3) nonprofit, nonpartisan organization’s endeavor to award a home to a wounded warrior is especially important to Lt. Governor Forest. As a member of the NC Advisory Commission on Military Affairs, he knows the needs of North Carolina’s large community of active duty and retired veterans are a vital concern of his constituents. “North Carolina is known as the most military-friendly state in the country, something that gives me a great deal of pride,” said Lt. Governor Forest.

The home to be awarded will be custom built by McKee Homes in the Legacy Lakes Community in Aberdeen, NC. The design will be determined once the hero is selected so all physical adaptation needs of the wounded warrior can be met. This will be the fifth home the Texas-based HelpingaHero organization has awarded in North Carolina.
