For the last 15 years, the seniors from a local high school history class pick an end-of-the-year project to help local veterans. This year they're helping Jerral.

The students organized yard sales, pizza nights and all kinds of other ways for the community as a whole to chip in to make sure Jerral and his children had a better place to call home.
