Appleton — An Appleton Vietnam Veteran is celebrating his new home with many of the volunteers and companies that made it possible.

Jerry Monson's mobile home on his Appleton lot was destroyed by a government program looking to make it more energy efficient. That happened back in 2014.

FOX 11 Investigates uncovered the problems and held government officials accountable for the destroyed mobile home. The program's insurer paid for the lost mobile home.
