This is a story worth telling: A Vietnam veteran was shopping at his local Lowe’s store on Staten Island in New York, when his wheelchair broke down. For two years he’d tried to get a replacement from the Veterans Administration, but with no luck.
That’s when three employees stepped in and told Michael Sulsona, “we’re going to make this chair like new.” And, they did, staying late to repair the wheelchair for Sulsona, who lost both of his legs to a land mine in 1971.
Sulsona, 62, sent a letter to his local paper to thank the employees for their help.
“They didn't ask any questions, didn't feel the need to fill out any forms or make phone calls. Someone needed help and they felt privileged to be given the opportunity,” Sulsona wrote.
"I kept thanking them and all they could say was, 'It was out honor'"
Since the break down at the store, the Veteran’s Administration has responded and sent Sulsona the replacement chair he’d been seeking.
