Beds for Vets!

We have discovered a very important need among the veterans who complete the structured program at a nearby Veteran’s Center and prepare to move out into their own apartments.  Many of them do not have a bed to sleep on!  This essential piece of furniture can be an overwhelming expense for men who are just getting back out on their own.

So some of the men of the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter have taken action to help meet this need!  We obtained a simple construction plan and materials list for a single bed.  Such a bed can suffice for someone until they save the funds to buy the bed of their choice.  We built two beds earlier in the year and delivered them to veterans in need.

This week Compatriot Glenn Greenfield, owner of a local construction company in Cadiz, managed to secure a lumber donation from a supplier in Hopkinsville to provide enough materials to build two more beds.  Today, chapter vice-president Steve Mallory cut, sanded, and assembled two more beds!

BEds for Vets

Chapter president Geoff Baggett will deliver the beds to the veteran’s center on Thursday.

Once again … the men of the Col. Stephen Trigg Chapter are doing “whatever it takes” to honor and assist our military veterans!
