Fulton Schools students support veterans and Operation Enduring Gratitude for Veterans Day

Students in construction gear post for a photo.

Students from the Del W. Webb School of Construction helped veterans by building concrete mobility ramps as part of Operation Enduring Gratitude before Veterans Day.

In the spirit of Veterans Day, four U.S. military veterans with physical challenges had concrete mobility ramps built at their homes by volunteers organized by the Fulton Schools’ Del E. Webb School of Construction.

Sixteen students from among members of the ASU chapter of the American Concrete Institute, the Fulton Student Veteran Organization and Advancing Women in Construction joined 10 craftsmen from three local concrete construction companies in using concrete from two ready-mix producers to construct ramps enabling the veterans to easily enter and exit their residences.

The work was done in support of Operation Enduring Gratitude, an organization that aids veterans in acknowledgement of their sacrifices in defense of the nation.

Watch local news coverage of their work, and check out our photo gallery:
