House of Heroes partners with 84 Lumber company to build handicap ram for veteran

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - House of Heroes Chattahoochee Valley Chapter partnered with 84 Lumber building material company to "Be A Hero for A Hero."

84 Lumber sponsored a project to build a handicap ramp for Seaman Daniel Lawrence. The ramp will enable him to move more easily and to get in and out of his residence.

During a ceremony on Thursday, Daniel Lawrence's wife, Vickie, accepted a flag that has been flown over the United States Capitol.  She said she is grateful for what has been done for her husband.

"It makes me want to cry because it has helped me so much. They just have no idea how much it helped me and my family," said Vickie Lawrence.

Daniel Lawrence entered the United States Navy on November 4, 1970, and served for three years on the USS Saratoga and in Vietnam.
