A Gold Star family was given a mortgage-free home just in time for Christmas.
Maggie Duskin, the wife of fallen U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer 2 Michael Duskin, a Green Beret, was given the keys to her home in Raleigh, North Carolina, last week, according to a press release.
According to the release, the two-story home is more than 2,800 square feet and was fully furnished when Duskin received the keys. The house even had a Christmas tree with wrapped presents to help Duskin and her 19-year-old daughter celebrate the holiday.

The house was given to Duskin in honor of her late husband’s military service by PulteGroup’s Built to Honor program, which gives mortgage-free homes to veterans who have been injured during their service and their families.
The Built to Honor program partnered with Operation Coming Home, a Raleigh-based group that builds and gives away homes to wounded veterans, to give Duskin the house.
