CHARLOTTE COUNTY, Fla. - A Southwest Florida veteran is getting some much needed home repairs thanks to Habitat for Humanity.

Charles Baker served in the Vietnam War. 

Habitat of Humanity - which is best known for helping people build their own houses - has a special program to help veterans with home repairs. 

"We're real thankful that they chose us to be one of the veterans in the community that was able to have volunteers come out and show their appreciation for what my husband did in the Vietnam War," says his wife Deborah Baker.

"We went through, pressure washed, did some light carpentry, then repainted the home," says Mike Mansfield of Habitat for Humanity.
