Army veteran gets new home in Farmington, thanks to foundation, bank
February 17, 2017
U.S. Army veteran Reid Erickson hadn’t seen so much as a photo of his new home before moving with his family to Farmington this week from Cape Coral, Fla. But it was a homecoming nonetheless Thursday when he rolled up to the property, where a crowd of relatives and well-wishers had gathered to celebrate his return to Minnesota.
Applause erupted as Erickson stepped out of the U-Haul truck, humbly accepting the keys to a new split-level house while his wife, Zulma, wiped away tears.
