UNDERWOOD, N.D. The union boys are coming to help save a disabled veteran and his wife from financial ruin and finish his handicapped-accessible home.

The unfinished house is on a new street on the south side of Underwood, snow piled around and the yard littered from the contractor's unfinished projects.

Chuck Stewart, 56, a career Air Force man, sits in the family car outside, tethered to oxygen for his pulmonary fibrosis and unable to make the trip inside the house in the cold.

He and his wife, Sue, started building the house last year after their two-story Minot home presented too many physical obstacles for him.
