The family of a fallen U.S. soldier are thankful this year after being given a new home just in time to celebrate the 2019 holiday season.
“It is just a feeling, I don’t know how to put it into words,” Jillian Hinton said. “I had actually almost a year to think about how I was going to say ‘thank you.'”
The Hinton family were favored by The Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation, this year with a new beginning.
Hinton’s family was picked along with families in Lake County and Tennessee to receive new homes from the charity.
“There are no words on earth that can actually describe the level of excitement and gratitude I have,” Hinton told WBTW News Channel 8.
Hinton’s husband, U.S. Army Sgt. Terrance Hinton, was killed in 2017 during a traffic accident while on duty with the Hawaiian State Guard.
“It is the most humbling experience possible,” said Chris Brandt, a representative for Tunnel to Towers. “I’m a father of three children and to see the smiles on the children’s faces, specifically, is the most heartwarming thing you could do.”
“It’s the deepest feeling of gratitude and warmness I’ve ever felt in my life,” upon receiving the amazing gift.
