THE BRONX - A former Marine is hoping to help other veterans by putting a roof over their heads and food on their plates. 

Retired Sgt. Gonzalo Duran is trying to turn his late father's Bronx home into a shelter for homeless vets. 

Duran says the house at 2381 Lorillard Place needs a lot of work, but that the challenge is worth it. He adds that the project would also prevent foreclosure. 

Duran struggled with homelessness himself back in 2011.
