FORT WORTH, Texas, Aug. 30, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Lon Smith Roof for Vets program today honored Vietnam Veteran Steven Moree of White Settlement, Texas and installed a new roof free of charge. Lon Smith Roofing, the largest roofing company in Texas, also worked to help secure replacement medals for Mr. Moree for his service in Vietnam.
"I am so thankful," Mr. Moree said as his new roof was being installed. "There is no way I could have done this without Lon Smith."
Mr. Moree was chosen as the quarterly recipient of the free roof after he was nominated for the program. The Roof for Vets program selects four quarterly recipients each year who must be veterans who are in need of assistance.
In addition, Lon Smith Roofing discovered that Mr. Moree had never received several of the service medals that he was due based on his service in Vietnam. Lon Smith was able to help secure from the Defense Department new medals including the Bronze Star that had been awarded to Mr. Moree for his valor during Vietnam.
"It's a great thing to be able to help Mr. Moree get a new roof and get his combat medals," said Lon Smith Vice President, Scott Hamilton. "We are proud to honor a great veteran like this."
