A Michigan couple plans to host a hog roast fundraiser designed to help build homes for returning soldiers with serious injuries.
The Kalamazoo Gazette reports Saturday afternoon's event at Jim and Peggy Fassett's Mendon home, about 67 miles south of Grand Rapids, is the couple's third.
Proceeds are to be used to build a house for Marine Cpl. Larry Draughn in Fairborn, Ohio.
Draughn's legs and two of his fingers were amputated in 2009 after he was wounded in an explosion in Afghanistan.
The Fassetts began teaming up with Homes for Our Troops after their son returned home from the U.S. Army. They also have held fundraisers for returning soldiers in the Detroit and Chicago areas.
The Massachusetts-based Homes for Our Troops was founded in 2004.
