HOUSTON, Texas (KPRC) - A 93-year-old World War II veteran is back at his newly renovated Houston, Texas home.


Elbert Wood returned home from a doctor's appointment last month and found his home burglarized.


After word of the vandalism spread Houston radio talk show host Michael Barry organized local Marine veterans and contractors to help make repairs to Wood's home.


Wood, who's also grieving the recent loss of his wife, said he's been amazed by all the support and generosity from people he didn't even know.


"I'm just amazed that there is so much kindness in this part of the country," said Wood.
