A military veteran who lost both of his legs in Vietnam says several employees at a Lowe’s hardware store came to his rescue earlier this month when his old wheelchair broke down.
Michael Sulsona wrote in the Staten Island Advance that on the evening of July 7, his wheelchair “fell apart” while shopping.
The veteran, who lost his legs after stepping on a land mine in 1971, added that the Veterans Administration had failed to provide him a new wheelchair in the past couple years.
“For the past two years, I have been waiting to receive a new wheelchair from the Veterans Administration. In addition, I have been told that I am not entitled to a spare wheelchair,” he wrote.
