Dennis Hall is dying. The 63-year-old veteran has terminal cancer, and one of his final wishes is to see the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. It is a simple request, but one the man is unable to afford.
His family held a garage sale and a bake sale as well, hoping to raise enough money to help him accomplish his goals. Local news broadcast the story, and the total donations reached thousands of dollars. Enough to send him on his trip, with the remainder to help with his medical bills. His daughter will go with him to the memorial, where he can pay his respects to those who fought beside him, and those who fell.
It warms the heart to see people rally to show appreciation for those who risked their lives for us. Perhaps our government will be inspired to do more of the same.
