U.S. Air Force Master Sergeant Miguel Olvera

Retired U.S. Air Force Master Sergeant Miguel Olvera of Smithville, Texas, spent 20 years serving his country in the U.S. Air Force. During his military career, he served as a tactical aircraft maintenance technician and an aircraft maintenance superintendent. He honorably retired from the U.S. Air Force in 1988.  

During his military service, Miguel was honored with many awards and recognitions. These include an Air Force Commendation Medal with one bronze oak leaf cluster, an Air Force Outstanding Unit Award with three bronze oak leaf clusters, an Air Force Good Conduct Medal with one silver and one bronze oak leaf cluster, a Nation Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Air Force Overseas Short Tour Ribbon, Air Force Overseas Long Tour Ribbon and many more. Miguel was also recognized for his faithful service with an Air Force Longevity Service Award Ribbon with four bronze oak leaf clusters.  

Miguel Olvera is an amputee and is primarily in a wheelchair. His current manufactured home is very old and has no ADA compliant specifications so it’s very difficult for Miguel to move within his home.

Thanks to support from the Texas Veterans Commission and Governor Abbott’s office, Operation Finally Home is proud to provide U.S. Air Force Master Sergeant Miguel Olvera with an Oak Creek mortgage-free manufactured home in Smithville, Texas.  In addition, thanks to McCoy's Building Supply for their product donations for modifications to the home.
