Lubbock Homes for Heroes, in partnership with the West Texas Home Builders Association, is proud to dedicate the 2013 Homes for Heroes home to local wounded warrior Army Sergeant Shawn Walton and his family.

The dedication ceremony was held Wednesday, May 29 at 11 a.m. at 2911 108th Street in the Cooper Ridge subdivision. Lunch was provided by FirstBank & Trust directly following the ceremony.

Lubbock native Sergeant Shawn Walton finished high school early in order to enlist in the US Army. He planned on making a career out of the military, but his plans came to an abrupt halt in August of 2007 when he stepped on an improvised explosive device (IED) while stationed in Iraq. 17 surgeries and hundreds of hours of physical therapy later, Shawn was left with no feeling on the outer side of his left leg and foot. Shawn's wife, Kristin and his three young daughters have stood by his side the entire time.

The third Homes for Heroes recipient, Sergeant Walton and his family can now focus on building their new lives together rather than struggling to pay the rent.

The home is being built and donated by local vendors and builders of the West Texas Home Builders Association and will be on tour for the public as part of the 2013 Fall Tour of Homes September 28-29th and October 5-6th.
