City Rallies behind Attacked Veteran

City Rallies behind Attacked Veteran

Posted: Updated:
The city of Daphne is rallying behind a veteran attacked in his own home last month.

Two men forced their way inside Robert Huber’s home, knocked him and his wheelchair down, and hit him in the head. Monday the Disaster Victim Services International in Daphne, and Home Depot announced they will help make Huber’s home more wheelchair friendly thanks to grant money awarded by The Home Depot Foundation.

 The Daphne Police Department announced a private citizen donated 500 dollars to help bring the two men to justice. Huber’s two daughters were also in attendance. His youngest daughter gave us an update on his medical condition.

"He's out of the woods of losing his life right now. He's in rehab right now and he's doing remarkably well," said Kim McLemore.

The family hopes to have him back home by his 80th birthday next month.

Disaster Victim Services and Home Depot will go to Huber’s home March 21st and 22nd and they are asking for volunteers. If you want to help, call Tony Dickey at 251-689-9527.
