Veteran group to help Ludington soldier

7.1.14:  “Helping A Hero” to help local veteran

 

 

An organization that helps wounded veterans is partnering with the community of Ludington to provide an affordable home for a retired veteran.

 

Eric Lund returned home to Ludington after being injured in Afghanistan.  He lost both arms when his unit came under attack.  Now the community wants to provide a home for him.

 

Groundbreaking took place over the weekend and the new house is expected to be finished in about 6 months.

 

This is the first house by the group “Helping A Hero” to be built for a retired soldier in Michigan.
