Military Marvel


An 85-year-old marine widow and Eustis resident generously donated her home to an injured army veteran she had never met to show her gratitude for his service. Veteran Tommy Travis will receive the Purple Heart for a brain injury he suffered after a grenade hit his Humvee in Iraq, killing two of his friends. The story is featured on the Lifetime TV show, “Designing Spaces: Military Makeovers,” set to air in October. For Travis, his wife, and two daughters, the generosity of the mortgage-free home means an end to continuous relocations and a more stable life.
