An Air Force veteran in Springfield, Mo., is getting a new roof thanks to the generosity of strangers.

Air Force veteran Ronald Clermont received a new roof as part of the Owens Corning Roof Deployment Project, a nationwide effort to show gratitude and honor the veterans who served our country, reports the Springfield News-Leader.

Habitat for Humanity of Springfield is building a six-bedroom home for Clermont and his senior-aged father, who will be joining them in the home.
