The gift of sight thanks to a crossroads business.
Newscenter 25s alexandra kent has the story.
Some gave all but all gave some, and one local business decided to do some giving back to a local veteran.
"and what the store's doing and what vickie's doing, is she's donating a pair of free glasses to gleen."
I'm gleen dorries' neighbor, i'm also his caretaker, i help take care of him.
He's a vietnam veteran, he was a medic in vietnam so you can just imagine what he's been through, just being a medic."
But when gleen needed glasses after failing an eye exam, his neighbor came through and so did a local business "i explained to vickie his condition, and how he's on a fixed income, and how he just doesn't have it.
It was going to be one hundred and sixty dollars for the glasses and he just doesn't have it.
And vickie, she felt his pain, his sorrow.
And she dug real deep, very emotional and she said you know what, i'm going to help this vietnam vet.
She donated a pair of glasses to gleen dorries, free.
And i want to commend eyemart and vickie."
Mr gomez hopes more businesses will do more for the heros in our community after hearing this story.
"gleen, gleen gave a lot.
Gleen gave a lot for this country.
And i'm just so glad that vickie was able to give back."
"it means everything to me.
And i appreciate everything they done" mr gomez hopes that this story encourages more businesses to give back to veterans.
