      New roof donated to Ishpeming veterans' facility

      American Veteran Post 122 received a generous gift for their campsite in Ishpeming Township.

      Dan Perkin's roofing construction company put on a brand new roof. Every year the company donates and installs a new roof to a different organization. The company's president felt the need to help the veterans amid this year's national controversy surrounding the Veterans Affairs Committee and the mistreatment of vets.

      "We feel the American veterans have taken a pretty hard year with the Veterans Affairs Commission being in the that it's been in this year," says Perkins

      "It's going to enhance our campground and make it more user friendly, handicapped accessible," says Terry Carlson, of the American Veterans post.

      The construction was a $10,000 project to the campground's restroom facilities.
