The need is sevier and if you can do nothing more than repost the link it will be greatly appreciated. I have already posted it on my th1bill Facebook Page and went so far as to ask President Trump on Twitter. If you feeel led, please help, the VA is forty miles away and some things must be done there as the clinics are not full service, Thank you for even reading and considering the need. https://www.gofundme.com/f/viet-vet...edium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet

Thank you Jason. I could post it on Brovo Compay's page but those old farts would starve themselves to give and I would not harm them if I could avoid and they are all old and broke also.

I hope you get your $100k.

If not, there are other options. You are not limited to local dealers. Some dealers will deliver long distance to your locale. This is just one example. They might have better prices.

Also, if your current wheelchair is too heavy for your current vehicle, it might be cheaper to just buy your own light wheelchair (used) for van travel. Use the VA one at home.

A third possibility, you can lease wheelchair vans rather than buy them outright.

My father had a wheelchair van, so I am familiar with them. He didn't pay anywhere near $100k for his. When he passed away, my sister sold the van to a local needy person for a few grand. Local agencies or home nurses might know of a similar opportunity.

No but that could be because the link was wrong.

4 that. Very few understand the humor of men that admitted to themselves admitted to themselves that they were walking dead aqll those years ago.

A few weeks ago I was at the VA and I was speaking with a Grunt from the Nam war and we were LOAO and my wife said we were nuts and young vets all around us just stared. He, like me is disabled and a former One Percenter, you know, just strange to civilians. But they have never flown straight into a quad-fifty and they never rode with the right hand on the throttle as the left hoisted a cold Miller Lite either... go figure. They kinow nothing of real life that only arrives after your friends expire and you must learn to stop remembering them, that way.

Having never earned the, revered by all Military, CIB, I never get up in the face of any that have! I still see those kids sitting on the floor with their legs hanging out the door. They were far braver than any of us in Close Support and if the LZ went hot, there were days we were unloaded before we touched the ground. I have been informed by more than one that they consider me nuts but I, also, know they are nuts for trustiung us!

But we worked well together.
