Springfield veteran gets a house makeover

A flag pole was installed in the front yard

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – A local military veteran who fought in both Afghanistan and Iraq was given a surprise of a life time.

Blue Cross Blue Shield and Rebuilding Together teamed up to completely make over Charly Oliva house in Springfield. She said, “They’ve completely done the back yard over; put all kinds of flower beds. They’re going to be putting up gutters, there’s a new light fixture, and anything you could imagine to do.”

A flag pole was even installed in Charly’s front yard. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts has a ‘Service Day’ once a year when they volunteer to give back to communities across Massachusetts.
