Oklahomans Help Vietnam Veteran’s Dying Wish Come True
Dennis Hall, 63, a Vietnam veteran has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer and his doctors are saying he only has a few months left to live. When the word spread about his wish, fellow Oklahomans made sure to step in and help his wish come true.
Hall, has never been to the Vietnam Veterans' Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. and he wanted to see the monument before he died. His family had a garage sale and a bake sale to help raise money for the trip. But when Oklahomans learned about this vet’s wish many sent monetary donations to his family. In fact not only is Hall and his daughter going to Washington on August 28, they will also have enough money to cover Hall’s medical bills.
In Oklahoma we take care of our own. We raise money, we donate, we volunteer – Oklahomans do make a difference every day with their generosity to those who need it most.
This story speaks to how much we care about each other and how we come together as a community when faced with adversary.
"I really can't say how much I appreciate the people in Oklahoma. I really thank them from the bottom of my heart," Hall said as reported by Channel 9.
