A group that helps Oklahoma veterans transition back home now has a major facelift.

Tulsa's coffee bunker celebrated finishing $24,000 in renovations Thursday all donated from Lowe's and its partners.

They put in new floors and painted the inside.

Veterans like David Paura say it's nice for people to have a place to meet veteran's who understand what they went through.

"A lot of people like to say, 'Well, the VA is going to prevent suicides and vet troubles'," said veteran David Paura. "Well, they are not going to go fishing with you on the weekend or have a beer after a long day. When you come to the Coffee Bunker, you establish meaningful relationships. It's like being back in a unit."

Lowe's, Midwest Flooring, and Summit Installations worked on the renovations as part of the Lowe's Heroes Project.
