Kid Rock once again demonstrated his support for U.S. troops on Saturday evening as he teamed up with Pulte Homes and a nonprofit assisting wounded veterans to present a new home to a Macomb County Army veteran who lost the lower part of his right leg in combat in Afghanistan.
Mount Clemens native Sgt. Davin Dumar and his wife, Dana, were surprised as they walked into a model home only to see Kid Rock along with friends, relatives, the media and others waiting to greet them as they will receive a mortgage-free 2,600-square-foot colonial home near 22 Mile Road and Hayes in Macomb Township.
“First of all, welcome home,” said Rock to the stunned but smiling couple. “You are going to receive a fully furnished home, top to bottom. Thank you for your service.”
Dumar, who was released only Friday from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Md., was at a loss for words at the reception.
“I don’t know what to say other than shock and amazement,” he said.
