One local bed and breakfast is doing something very special to honor our nation's heroes.

Teresa Jacobson owns Azalea Inn and Villas and she regularly donates a room to a Purple Heart recipient. She's been doing this for the last three years, and she said she does it because she can.

"I get the biggest thrill out of hearing their stories," she said.

"When something comes up and people want to say thank you, it just almost takes your breath away a little bit," MSgt. Joseph Commendatore said.

Jacobson said she also partners with other local tour companies and restaurants who donate as well - to give the special couples staying with her an extra special time.
