Area veteran receives new home thanks to life-changing program

Operation Finally Home and Putte-Group's Built to Honor program provide home to Army veteran.

LEANDER, Texas (KWTX) Leander veteran Vaitogi Taetuli and his family are in their brand new, mortgage free home this week thanks to an organization called Operation Finally Home.

The group partnered with Putte-Group's Built to Honor program to provide the home to the Army veteran who was injured over seas.

Taetuli was deployed twice to the Middle East and received multiple commendations and medals for saving the lives of fellow soldiers.

The family received the keys Friday.
