Nearly every time a celebrity is in the news, it’s because they are disrespecting the flag, promoting abortion, or engaging in some lewd behavior.
But this story is different.
Country star Lee Greenwood just did something to serve this wounded veteran that will make you proud to be an American.
Lee Greenwood is most famous for his song, “God Bless the U.S.A.”
Since releasing the song, he’s teamed up with several organizations to assist veterans in need.
In this case, he helped Matt Deatherage – who lost his legs in Afghanistan – by providing him with a new home equipped to support his disability and make life easier.
Fox News reports:
Country music star Lee Greenwood was especially proud to be an American over the holiday weekend, after working with a nonprofit to provide a specialized home for an Afghanistan war veteran who lost his legs overseas.
Greenwood teamed up with Helping a Hero to provide wounded warrior Matt Deatherage with a home equipped for him to live independently, and the two men appeared on “Fox & Friends” on Monday to talk about the new house and the organization that made it happen.
Deatherage said he was “amazed” at his new home, and the hard work done by Helping a Hero to aid dozens of veterans like himself with special needs…
His new home is equipped with ramps and wide doors to accommodate his chair, as well as an exterior pathway so that he can get around outdoors.
Matt Deatherage’s wheelchair made it difficult for him to get around the house and even through doors.
Thanks to Lee Greenwood and Helping a Hero, Deatherage can now use ramps in his house to get around and get through doorways without assistance.
It is refreshing to see a celebrity do something patriotic for a change and help a veteran.
Lee Greenwood should be applauded for being so generous.
He should also be commended for standing up for our country without fear of backlash and what other celebrities may think of him.
It is a shame that there aren’t more celebrities like Lee Greenwood.
