RIO RANCHO – Retired Army Spc. Jason Thompson fought back tears as he and his family were given a tour of their new home Wednesday on Agua Dulce Drive.
The Afghanistan War veteran said he’s usually not an emotional person.
But it was hard for him to fight the emotions in describing his feelings about receiving the house as a gift for his service through a partnership of U.S. Bank and Freedom Alliance, a charity providing support to service members and military families.
He was presented with a key to the home in a ceremony that included U.S. Rep. Ben Ray Luján, Rio Rancho Mayor Gregg Hull and officials from U.S. Bank and Freedom Alliance.
