Hometown Pasco for May 19

Veteran receives mortgage free home: Army veteran Sgt. David Roca reads welcoming notes from future neighbors and other community members on the studs of his new mortgage-free home being built in Land O’Lakes. Roca and his family received the home through Operation Finally Home, an organization that partnered with home builder Lennar and the residential community of Connerton to provide the home mortgage free. A single father of three, Roca, 36, along with girlfriend, Kenia Torres, and youngest son, David Jr., 2, received a first look at the home April 9. Inside, they were surprised by hundreds of supportive notes that thanked Roca for his service and even recommended where to find the best tacos in town. Roca sustained several traumatic brain injuries while serving in Iraq and medically retired from the Army in 2008. Relocating from Orlando, the Roca family moved into their new home at the end of April.
