Jason Battistoni’s father was a Marine who taught him “from day one that you should respect and praise the military for your freedom.” The home building exec (above, far left), whose oldest daughter now serves in the U.S. Air Force, has done just that, prompting Pulte to donate land and build mortgage-free homes for veterans, in partnership with the nonprofit Operation Finally Home. Last year Battistoni got to surprise two service members’ families with homes in San Antonio. This year the company launched a program called Built to Honor, which plans to deliver homes to 20 wounded veterans by the close of 2014.
