CALDWELL -- U.S. Army Veteran Robert Fleming has been working to get his life back on track since he enrolled in the Canyon County Veterans Treatment Court nine-months ago.

Now, he's giving something back to the very court that has helped him straighten out his life.

Fleming started our refurbishing bicycles for his community service term, and on Monday, he raffled off his 100th bicycle.

"It was a blessing because Lighthouse Rescue Mission gave me an area to work on these bicycles. I try to get out there at least every 3 days, volunteer work for them," said Fleming. "I'm looking forward to a new life now."

Fleming was able to sell over a thousand tickets in the past two months, for this "American Flag" bicycle.

He raised over $1,300,  which he gave to the Veterans Court donation account, which is used support various functions associated with the program.
