Country singer and actor Tim McGraw has declared that he will give each of 25 veterans a mortgage-free home this summer as he travels the country with Kenny Chesney on the Brothers of the Sun Tour. McGraw has had a number of family members in the military including a sister who is a veteran of the first Gulf War. “I’ve always felt a deep sense of respect and obligation to our troops,” said McGraw. “Being able to reward them for their dedicated work with a new home will be even more rewarding for us. It feels so good to give back to them, and to have the opportunity to entertain them on Memorial Day is something I’m honored to do.”

“It’s going to be a great opportunity to set a family on track that’s done so much for us and my family,” McGraw said. “So I can’t imagine a better thing to do on tour. It’s going to be fun – I mean every tour date we’re going to be out there.”

    My husband has been active duty for the past 17 years. When Mom or Dad is deployed, what a blessing it will be for these families to not have financial stress on top of an already stressful situation. What a blessing this will be for those 25 families. It is FANTASTIC that Tim McGraw is helping out Vetrens in this way. Thank you~
