OCT Equipment Donates CTL and Excavator to Home Demolition for Korean War Veteran

CASE Construction Equipment dealer OCT Equipment donated the use of a compact track loader and excavator to Team Rubicon for the free demolition of a Korean War veteran’s house that was deemed uninhabitable. The initiative is led by Honoring America’s Warriors and will lead to the construction of a brand new home for Harold Edwards and his wife, Minnie, through a partnership with Central Oklahoma Habitat for Humanity.

Edwards served in Korea from 1950 to 1953 in the 1st Marine Division. Scotty Deatherage, the director of Honoring America’s Warriors, became aware of Edwards’ situation and assembled a coalition of veteran organizations and construction companies to do the work. Midwest Wrecking, Northeast Landfill and McRoof OKC have provided additional support for the project.
