COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - The Chattahoochee Valley Chapter of House of Heroes partnered with Veterans of Anthem and Upatoi United Methodist Church today to make home repairs to 'Be a Hero for a Hero.'

Volunteers from Veterans of Anthem worked on the home of Mrs. Pearlie Johnson, the widow of Staff Sergeant John Johnson.

SSG Johnson served 20 years in the Army and received a Purple Heart. He passed away in 2003.
