Local Vet Getting Help From Marines...Need Supplies To Help Put Roof Over His Head

While many of us have paused to remember veterans, others continue the work everyday to help members of the military who are disabled, forgotten or in need.

One of those is Vietnam vet Michael Coleman. His home in Jacksonville is literally in shambles. After the war, Coleman spent much of his time caring for his ailing wife, even as his war injuries worsened. As his life changed so did his home, it literally fell apart. Since Coleman is practically immobile, he is unable repair his home.

A few Marines and other good Samaritans at Camp Lejeune are working to help Coleman right now, but they are in need of building supplies.

    If anyone deserves a "home makeover" it is Michael. He has helped so many people, he is to proud to say how many so I will. Even when his health was failing he was always there to help anyone who needed it, to include letting them stay at his house while they got on their feet. He truly deserves any help anyone can give him.
