“We remember those who were called upon to give all a person can give, and we remember those who were prepared to make that sacrifice if it were demanded of them in the line of duty, though it never was.” Ronald Reagan, Veteran’s Day, 1988.
Each November 11th, the United States honors our military members with the federal holiday of Veteran’s Day. Originally starting as Armistice Day in 1918 on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, as an armistice was called to end World War I. Then, in 1954 Congress passed the bill that President Eisenhower signed to proclaim November 11th as Veterans Day. This holiday, not to be confused with Memorial Day, is a day in which we honor all those who have served our country in the United States Armed Forces, dead or alive today.
Legacy Mortgage Group Honors our Veterans
Legacy Mortgage knows firsthand the value of those military men and women who willingly choose to sacrifice if it is demanded of them. Our owner and founding broker, Derek Jones, is a 1990 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point. Derek went on to serve honorably during the First Gulf War as an Infantry Lieutenant and Airborne Ranger. He then finished his active duty service with the 1st Cavalry Division at Fort Hood, TX.
We are proud to honor our veterans with unique mortgage programs and discounts, listed below:
The Department of Veteran Affairs offers a housing benefit for service members, veterans, and surviving spouses. These home loans are provided by banks or private mortgage lenders, and backed by the VA.
There are many great benefits of VA loans, including: no down payment, low interest rates, minimal closing costs, and private mortgage insurance (PMI) is not required. With such great advantages like these, VA loans are often considered to be one of the best types of loans for home purchases and refinances.
Additionally, Legacy Mortgage offers a discount toward closing costs for those who work in several service industries. We honor those who work in industries such as: teachers and support staff, nurses, doctors, first responders, military, veterans, and anyone serving in ministry with a discount toward your closing costs. We are happy to help those who do so much for our country and communities, and have several options available, including $0 down, a donation to a non-profit of your choice, realtor discounts, and our Best Deal Guarantee.
