Over the last four years, Keith Maupin has come to have one of the best known faces in the Tri-State.
But now, his distinctive look is a little different.

U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-Ohio) and other volunteers worked on the
future site of the Yellow Ribbon Support Center on Tuesday as part of an extreme home
makeover, if you will.
The Yellow Ribbon Support Center is a non-profit founded by
Keith Maupin that sends thousands of care packages to troops serving overseas.
Maupin says rent at the former location was becoming too
high, so he plans to move the center to his own garage. As a result, the money
they're going to save can be used to send more care packages abroad.
"I told him that my air conditioner didn't work so he
came out to do that and the other guy was going to come out and do some
plumbing and fix that, and they thought well this ain't going to work because
it needed a lot more than just that," Maupin told FOX19.
Now volunteers including Portman are getting their hands
dirty to renovate the house and build a brand new office to run the support
"Matt gave the ultimate sacrifice, but there are a lots
of other troops too who are over there putting their lives on the line for us,
and these guys care a lot about them so I care a lot about these guys,"
On Tuesday, Portman presented Maupin with an American flag
that was flown over Washington D.C.
"Just lost for words you know, there's a lot of people out
there that want to help and then will help continue the mission and support the
men and women serving in harms way. It's pretty simple," said Keith.
There was still plenty of work to be done, including new
carpeting, drywall and painting. Maupin says he expects the garage to be
completed and operations at the Yellow Ribbon Support Center to continue at the
garage in Clermont County in about a month.
