In November 2018, former Master Sgt. Michael Levine and his family started a new life in North Carolina as two F-15 jets from nearby Seymour Johnson Air Force base streaked across the sky — a fitting start to a ceremony honoring a wounded Army veteran. PNC Bank and the Military Warriors Support Foundation were on hand that day to present Levine with keys to a mortgage-free home. Levine, who was wounded during his second tour of Iraq in 2005, is a 24-year veteran of the U.S. Army and the Iowa Army National Guard. He received the Purple Heart and many other commendations for his service.
Police, local dignitaries and PNC executives escorted the family, who toured the renovated house for the first time. The four-bedroom, two-bath house is located in Stantonsburg, about an hour southeast of Raleigh.
The event marked the fourth time in as many years that PNC and the Military Warriors Support Foundation joined forces to donate a mortgage-free home to a wounded hero through the foundation’s Homes4WoundedHeroes program. Since 2011, the foundation has awarded nearly 800 mortgage-free homes to qualified combat-wounded veterans.
