Veterans Re-Shingle Roof For POW/MIA Widow


LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) – Veterans and volunteers gathered in Lansing Sunday morning to re-shingle a roof for the widow of a prisoner of war who went missing in action in Vietnam 46 years ago.

Uvah Wright's husband, Arthur Wright, was captured on February 21, 1967. Calvin Murphy, a man who served with Wright says he feels it's his duty to look after Wright's widow, and make sure she's well taken care of.

"Over the years, I'd come across the family and kept up with her," says Murphy. "She's still waiting for her husband to come home and I knew she needed some help with some things so I got some things going and we got a ramp put on her house earlier this year, and now we're going to re-shingle the roof to stop the leaks that are inside there."
