This is so amazing! Thank Mike for his service, and you and your wife for being such wonderful parents. Hats off to Home Depot. I can't think of a more deserving bunch.
That's awesome! Very happy to hear you guys have stepped onto smoother trails.
Wow..that is amazing. It's great that well deserving folks get real help when they need it. Godspeed to all of you and thank Mike for his service and great sacrifice while serving.
Really great to hear such good news and that "Good People" do get a well deserved hand when they need it.
Kudos to Home Depot too.
Wishing you guys all the best in your future and hoping the work gets completed soon.
Now, if "corporate" approves only some of what the crew requested, contact Habitat for Humanity. They might be able to work on the remainder that needed to be done. I understand they also do that sort of thing.
I bet Mike really likes that back deck . I’ve seen the views of those beautiful mountains on some of your posts . Hope they make it easier for him .
So much awesomeness. Off to HD to spend some money. Good on them and good for you and your family.
I was typing out my response but found this post says it best.
No words adequately say how happy I am for you and your family. @NevadaBlue
Home Depot is awesome. I bought a water heater from them and it failed on a sat. They gave me a new one and money to hire a private company to come out on an emergency call and install it rather than wait for one of thier contractors. I left the store with a new tank, and a handful of cash. Felt like a bank robber. Highly recommend them
Id like to thank Mike for his service. And you and his mother for helping him. It makes me sad to hear this but im glad there are good people around doing good to make his life alittle better.
Best news I have heard in quite a while! So happy for Mike and the family. This made my holiday! God is great!
First of all, thank Mike, for his service.
You've no idea how happy I am, for all of you. Like they say, good things happen to good people.
Very happy for you!
I shop at Home Depot from time to time, but I plan on doing more business with them. Didn’t know they supported Veterans.
Thank Mike for his service! Glad he made it hone!
Gary Sinise also does great things for Veterans if you run into any snags.
Red Circle Foundation for Special Forces Veterans.
There is the Travis Mills Foundation founded by a quadruple amputee. His story is very inspiring! He offers getaways, support and camaraderie for wounded Veterans.
There are many more out there too.
I have read this about 10 times, trying to fit words to fingers and each time I would not hit the post button. But here goes....
First, a huge thank you to Mike for his service!
Second, that's awesome!
I hear and read articles about vets and mistreatment so often it gets sickening.
When I hear or read something like this it puts a huge smile on my face. I wish more companies and people would do things like this.
In these times of fake or phony news, it is awesome to hear real, heart warming news like this. And although you receive the direct impact, we all share in the indirect.
That is such great news. God bless everyone involved in this project. Mike deserves so much more.
I was unaware of Home Depot ' s work in this area. I have a Lowe's and a Home Depot equidistant from me. I now know where I'll be spending my money.
I'm really glad they do this for Mike,it makes his and your life a bit easier
its not always necessary to have the same blood in your veins to be family,family is where you find it.
My deepest respect to Mike,thank him for his service
Good on you.!
To be fair, we don’t have a Lowes here. But, when I looked up the info about Veteran support, both Lowes and Home Depot were on the same page in BIG letters. I suspect they both do good deeds in this respect.
We go tomorrow to meet with the folks at Home Depot and pick out flooring.
You're right, I shouldn't sell Lowe's short. Thank God there are many businesses willing to step up for our wounded warriors. I always want to spend my dollars on worthy companies.
Hey there my friend. Your OP got me to thinking. I would suggest (only) that you have a smoke of that pipe of yours out back as the sunsets and relax and offer some of the smoke up in thanks to who ever or what ever you derive your life to.
Warmest regards and thanks for sharing the good news!
Well folks, we just got notified that the grant for the upgrades for Mike’s home has been APPROVED by Home Depot. They start the demolition of the old stuff on September 28th. This is wonderful news for us.
They will be providing Mike a new ADA (accessible) bathroom with a roll in shower, hard surface flooring in his rooms and the main part of the house (to prevent the wheel chair from destroying the floors) and some work on the deck. That will include resurfacing the deck and installing our porch lift elevator so Mike can get down to the back yard easily.
Awesome news Ken! So glad to hear that life will be a little easier for Mike!!
This has given me the biggest smile I have had this week so far!
May God continue to Bless all of you out west, Ken.
I will repeat a quote I hear on Tucker Carlson:
Everyone is fighting a battle
no one knows anything about
so be kind.
That is awesome news Ken!
I think that was originally spoken by Tenzin Gyatso. Hard to imagine that phrase coming up from that source!
That's awesome, good news!
Congratulations and y’all deserve it
Great new, thanks for the update, @NevadaBlue !
This couldn't have happened to better or more deserving folks!
Many thanks from my family for the sacrifices and selflessness of yours
That's the best news I've heard for ages Ken. Thanks for updating us. Don't forget the pictures!
It will be an adventure. 2/3 of the furniture in the house will be in the family room, since they are tearing out the carpet in the large areas. Pics will happen.
Excellent news. It's going to be pretty hectic there. Might be a good time to set the tent up outside for some calm overnight adventures?
Awesome news Ken!
Wish I could get out there to help! I'm not very bright but I can lift heavy things...
I will never know or meet you, but I wish I could. Judging from your posts, I think we would be friends. My heart goes out to you and your son, a hero. I have seen the founder of home depot on tv, usually involved in charitable event. God bless him. Thank god for the contractor who got things rolling.
Great news. Kudos to Home Depot and all involved in this project. God bless you and your family.
Great news! Very happy for you and your family.
Such a great thing happening to you guys!
Is going to help you allaround.
Congrats, we’re all excited to see this project kick off. Your son is a hero and patriot for his service to our country. I was not aware of this Home Depot Program for our vets but I will give them my business going forward. I have nothing but respect for your family’s support to your son. I wish I was closer, i’d Come to your open house celebration!
Sorry you needed it. Glad you got it.
Oh Ken! I just found this thread and I'm so happy you guys are getting the help you deserve. My dad was a double amputee WW2 vet so this hits close to home!
I don't know how I missed this but rest assured that I am elated to hear this news.
And please, thank your son for his service and sacrifice on my behalf.
So glad to hear about this Ken, very awesome blessing for Mike and your family.
Gave me a smile on an otherwise somber day 9/11.
Kudos to Home Depot. They have my future business.
