Deputies Help Get Veteran With Disability To Doctor’s Appointment 100 Miles Away

Alabama lawmen demonstrated great team work when they helped a disabled veteran go to where he wanted to go.


A Walker County Sheriff’s Office deputy saw a man walking down the road with an oxygen tank and came to know he was a disabled Gulf War veteran. The man wanted to go from the Jasper area to Huntsville for a doctor’s appointment but had no transport, so he started walking.
