Paralyzed Air Force Combat Receives Free Home in Estancia at Wiregrass

A paralyzed United States Air Force officer and his family received the gift of a lifetime. A brand new luxury home in Wesley Chapel’s Estancia at Wiregrass.

As part of Estancia’s builder WCI (Lennar) annual Focused Acts of Caring Program, Lennar and MacDill Air Force Base presented a custom-built, mortgage-free home in Wesley Chapel to Maj. Ed Gilchrist and his family.

Gilchrist, a 2005 graduate of the Air Force Academy, was assigned to Air Force Special Operations Command at MacDill when he was paralyzed in a training accident.

Gilchrist completed five combat deployments, accumulating more than 2,500 flight hours, 500 of which were considered combat hours, before he was injured.
