BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) -

One veteran and his family will soon call the Lowcountry home.

That's because the PulteGroup will be donating a brand-new home to a wounded veteran as part of their "Built to Honor" program. 

Launched in 2013, PulteGroup operations across the nation have banded together with generous suppliers and contractors to support this effort, having built 50 new homes mortgage-free for deserving wounded veterans. 

One of the newest homes is currently under construction in the Seagrass Station community of Bluffton.

The family is expected to move into their new home some time in November. But on Friday, Sept. 29, volunteers will gather at the home around 10 a.m. to write notes of love and encouragement on the walls and in the frame of the house.

Retired U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Clark Johnson is the recipient of this new home, and will relocate his family, including his wife, children and grandchildren, to Bluffton, South Carolina, from Colorado Springs, Colorado, once the home is completed.

Johnson served 16 years active duty. He suffered serious head and neck injuries from an explosive while deployed in Iraq in February 2006.

    Relaxing outside this Father's Day afternoon? Showers and thunderstorms will continue drifting across the Coastal Empire and Low Country into the early evening hours. Since these storms aren't moving fast, you can expect water to collect on roadways if you're caught under a downpour. The good news is that we will be much drier by sunset, meaning your dinner grilling plans are still a go!
