    Tim McGraw Gives Mortgage-Free Homes To Veterans Because That's The Kinda Guy He Is:thumbup2::thumbup2::wub:
    Tim McGraw is giving away a mortgage-free house to a veteran at each of the remaining stops on his 2015 tour, Business Insider reported. “[These are] people who have given us security for a lot of years,” McGraw said in a promotional video for his initiative. “And we’re able to do that back for them a little bit, in a small way.”

    Since 2012, McGraw, along with Chase Bank and the military nonprofit Operation Homefront, has helped provide more than 100:golfclap: homes to veterans and their families, according to the singer’s website. So far on his “Shotgun Rider 2015 Tour,” which began June 5, McGraw has given away six houses. He plans to award 30 more homes on the tour until it concludes in September.:thumbup2::thumbup2::thumbup2:

    “I can honestly say that I got as much -- or more -- out of the experience than the veterans who received the new homes and assistance,” McGraw said in a statement. “These families made an incredible mark on me, and I’m more grateful than I’ve ever been for the sacrifices they make every day to serve our country.”:thumbup2::thumbup2::thumbup2:

    For McGraw, giving back to the military is a particular personal cause. On his 2012 “Brothers of the Sun” tour, he gave away 25 homes to wounded or needy military service members, the Associated Press reported.:wub: "My sister's a veteran, my uncle's a veteran, my grandfather was a veteran, one of my best friends is a veteran," he said in an interview. "I've known people my whole life who are in service to America. And I think in my position to be able to do something like that is probably the ultimate thing.”:wub::wub::wub:

    A house is all well and good but did he ever give away 500 bucks from some TV show that ultimately got cancelled or some movie that tanked?

    Imagine all of the trouble Howard had to endure to get them to his house.

    1. Call Ronnie to pick them up

    2. Tell Consuela to cook two more meals

    3. Have Ralph do the laundry. Well, maybe not Ralph.

    Howard used to have a sponsor (800-Flowers?) send free flowers to his mother for Mother's Day. Then Howard would badger her on-air for a huge "Thank You" for his "gift."

    What a loser.

    No.No.No! Since he is a country musician, and most of his fans are in the south, kittens would be in danger. We have to remember that there was a #nugget holocaust "down south" where St Beefus had to fearlessly fly down there to rescue Blind Buddy and his friends. The proof is in her Instagram photos! #herpurpose.
