WANTAGH - Volunteers are helping two World War II veterans get back on their feet after Sandy left them homeless.

Besides each other, 89-year-old World War II veterans Bill and Grace Lent don't have much else. Much of their Wantagh home was reduced to piles of trash when Sandy hit.

But volunteers from the Mormon church, the Marine Corps and local contractors have stepped up to help the Lents rebuild. They hope to have the couple back in their home by Christmas, though they're still in need of supplies to make that happen.

A foundation called Saving Grace has been set up for anyone who wants to help out.
