CREVE COEUR (WEEK) -- To celebrate Veterans Day this year, one local company gifted a Creve Coeur veteran with a new roof.

Vietnam veteran Philip Edward Smith has not been able to get essential repairs to his roof and has had to cover it with a tarp.

For the last four years, River City Roofing has found a veteran in need each year and made repairs.

By the end of Wednesday, Smith will have a new roof for his entire house.

Smith says he's unbelievably grateful.

"What's going through my mind is I have an awesome God. I've never had a Veterans Day like this before, let's put it that way," said Smith. "To be honest, I feel it's almost a requirement for civilians to give back to those guys."

Timothy Garrison with River City Roofing wans Smith to know that his community and country appreciate him.
