It is a heartwarming story of generosity from the heart during the holiday season.
The non-profit group Homes For Our Troops, broke ground for a new home near new Bern Friday. It will be given to a wounded soldier, Eric Edmundson who served in Iraq, and his family. Homes For Our Troops is building the house with donated money, materials and services from local businesses.
