To the Editor: How to Help a Veteran


How to Help a Veteran

If you’ve wanted to honor a wounded soldier and help him/her regain some freedom, here is a perfect project.

The ladies of the Albemarle Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution are sponsoring the project “Back on Track.” We are raising funds to buy two Trackchairs to be awarded to Virginia military veterans, who have served our country. They’ve made the full commitment to protect our freedoms and in the process suffered life-changing injuries.

The Trackchair is a mobilized machine on a triangular shaped track that can travel up and down hills, onto a beach, into the woods and over any uneven terrain. They can even go into water up to the battery pack. This chair can take the veteran anywhere a wheelchair can’t go. Our hope is to give a new life and excitement to the soldier, who is currently denied these everyday pleasures. This will enable and give them the ability to go fishing, hunting, play golf, work in the yard, travel in wooded areas and attend children’s athletic events.

If you’d like to join with us, make out your check to Albemarle Chapter, NSDAR and send it to Albemarle Chapter, P.O. Box 191, Ivy, Va. 22945.

One hundred percent of funds raised will go towards the purchase of Trackchairs. Albemarle Chapter, NSDAR is a 501(c)3 organization and your donation is fully tax deductible.

We thank you for helping in this very worthy project.
