A Korean War veteran from Central Pennsylvania came home from breakfast to find quite a surprise at his house in Mill Hall.

A construction crew was redoing his roof - for free.

Eighty-four-year-old Donald Hills immediately noticed the crowd of people and was overcome with gratitude.

"What could I say? My God, they know we appreciate it," said Hills.

The owner of a Clinton County construction company had been looking to help someone out for a few months before he got connected with the former paratrooper.

His crew even managed to measure the roof one day, without Hills noticing.

The job would have cost the veteran $6,000.
