WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - The organization, Step Up for Soldiers, is getting closer to building a home for one lucky veteran and his/her family.

When the organization was donated a plot of land in the Monkey Junction area, Organizer Thomas Russell decided to design and build a home for a veteran to stay in with his/her family while they go to Cape Fear Community College or the University of North Carolina Wilmington.

The plan is to let them stay there at an affordable cost.

Russell said now the plans for the home are being finalized, once they are approved a groundbreaking date will be set up.

He expects that to happen sometime soon.
