Home Makeover For Disabled Veteran

Hundreds of volunteers help a wounded veteran in Duplin County with a house makeover.

A dedication ceremony to unveil the extensive home improvements at Warren Cottrell's new home in Beulaville was held Friday.

The non-profit organization "Military Missions in Action" helped transform the home for the 11 year Marine Corps veteran.

Three years ago Cottrell was injured in Iraq and now suffers from a traumatic brain injury and post traumatic stress disorder.

The primary focus of Military Missions In Action is to provide home modifications to disabled veterans to allow them to live in their homes independently.

    This is a real veteran who is truly worthy of people's help and respect. I hope this project really solves problems for the family of this genuine war hero.
