Rogers Dennis was a B-12 bomber during World War II.
His house was in need of cosmetic repairs, so Dyess We Care team stepped in over the weekend.
Dyess We Care team voluntarily helps numerous residents with home projects who might not otherwise be able to complete them, but helping this veteran and fellow serviceman was especially rewarding for the team.
Dennis says seeing so many different ranking airmen and women working together is a difference from how he remembers the military during World War II, when he says the different ranks were much more segregated.
The compassion from soldiers off the battlefield is perhaps what made the biggest impression on Dennis, but knowing his house now has a fresh coat of pain isn't so bad either.
Dyess We Care team has a new wishing well to raise funds, hosted by Hastings in Abilene.
