America’s communities are better #ThanksToVeterans like Forrest.

Forrest thought he was just tagging along with some friends to a Charlotte Hornets basketball game. When the Army Veteran suddenly found himself on the court, with a free throw for a new home on the line, Hornets legend Muggsy Bogues and actor Rob Riggle stepped in to help.

Forrest didn’t know it yet, but he had already won the 11th and final home in our #ThanksToVeterans Home Giveaway.
