SMITHS STATION, AL (WTVM) – A humble home in Smiths Station is caring for veterans and serving the community on this holiday.

For twenty years, a home that many may have overlooked in Smiths Station has been caring for veterans.

This Thanksgiving, there was a special gathering to thank those veterans for their service.

“We would not be here if it wasn’t for the men and women that for our freedom to be able to have Thanksgiving,” said Smiths Station Mayor Bubba Copeland.

“I am just overwhelmed to have our mayor here and all of the volunteers to lead our homes and come out here to serve the veterans,” said Kathy Brown of Love and Touch Home for Veterans.

Brown has been in charge of Love and Touch Home for Veterans in Smiths Station since 1992.

Inside the Lee Rd. 294 home, 14 veterans are cared for by Brown and her family and staff.
