Tuesday Update, February 20

A House for a Hero — James "Shane" and Tessa Ray, followed by son Zachary, take their place at the front before a groundbreaking ceremony. The nonprofit Helping a Hero partnered with Westin Homes in the MorningStar Community in Liberty Hill to give the Purple Heart veteran and his family a four-bedroom home. Sergeant Ray ran over a bomb while on patrol in Iraq in 2006, resulting in severe burns and the loss of his leg. "I'm looking forward to the accessibility for me to be able to do stuff," he said. Helping a Hero has given homes to more than 100 wounded veterans in 22 states. Madison Simmons
