ROTC Members Help Habitat for Humanity With Veteran Build in Monongalia County

Posted: Updated:

Army ROTC cadets helped the Monongalia County Habitat for Humanity with their Veterans Build on Saturday.

West Virginia University and Fairmont State University ROTC members helped build a house in Monongalia County. It was done before Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Habitat builds houses for veterans to go to with their families.

"Habitat for Humanity is a great opportunity and great charity for anybody that can bring their skills," said Master Sergeant John Feiler. "They're always looking for individual volunteers or group volunteers. It's a great group project. We came out and had a great time, had a barbeque, fed some of the other workers. Great social atmosphere."

"The fact that I found out this was for veterans kind of pushed me to come out and help more because I know eventually I'll be a veteran," said Carolyn Leister, ROTC Company Commander. "And it'll be nice for people to come out and support me for when I become one."

The house that the ROTC helped build on Saturday did not go to a veteran family but they are still looking for families to help.
