NEW BERN, N.C. (WNCT) – A Marine in New Bern is now one step closer to a fresh start as Veteran’s Day approaches.

Warren Cottrell is pictured in front of his new no-cost home with the volunteers who helped him build it.

The project was completed through a partnership with the Fresh Coat Painters and the Military Missions in Action organization.

The home was built in a series of stages over the last three years.
