(New Braunfels, TX)  --   On September 11th, 2001, 8th-grader Justin Lane decided to join the army.  And join he did.  Unfortunately, Justin lost his best friend, and both of his legs in Afghanistan.  Yesterday morning, hundreds turned out to attend a Welcome Home Ceremony for (retired) Specialist JP Lane.  Not because Lane was returning home, but because the organization Helping a Hero chose Lane to be the recipient of a new home in Rebecca Creek Ranch, built to his needs and requests.  Helping a Hero officials say they have helped more than 100 wounded warriors in 22 states with homes adapted to their special needs. On Thursday, George P. Bush and singer Lee Greenwood were among the dignitaries  on hand to present Lane with the keys to his new country home. Mike and Roxann Cotugno of MJ Construction Services built and designed the 2,600-square foot home where Lane will continue to recover, as he pursues a music career.
