See how a Hall County veteran got a new roof through fundraising program
07012018 ROOF 3
Sunrise Roofing's Travis Rylee unloads lumber Monday, June 25, 2018 at a Hall County home as Jackson EMC is partnering with the roofing and construction company to donate and install a new roof for veteran Roy Martin. Rylee's crew stripped off the old roof to discover more damage than anticipated requiring additional time and effort by the crew. - photo by Scott Rogers
Roy Martin sat on his front porch cooking dinner on a charcoal grill, smoke floating toward his face every so often. Soon it began to rain, but he continued to sit, with no shirt on, leaned back in one of the two chairs on the porch. It’s something the Vietnam-era military veteran and retired electrician doesn’t take for granted anymore because it’s something he hasn’t been able to do for a while.
