Local veteran gets a surprise Christmas
North Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A local veteran and his family were surprised when a group of strangers came to their house Wednesday and delivered Christmas to them. 
Michael Harper is a 17-year veteran. His savings was drained after he lost his job, his father-in-law died, and his mother-in-law became ill. He fell behind on his rent and needed help. He didn't think he would be able to provide Christmas to his wife and three sons. 
A local veteran's group called VA REP heard the family was in need. They raised over $3,000. With that money they bought presents and a Christmas tree.
A group of volunteers, including the North Las Vegas Fire Department and the North Las Vegas Police Department, surprised the family on Christmas Eve when they delivered the gifts to the family. 
The money raised also went to catch the family up on their rent.
