Earlier this month in Cincinnati a man had just finished withdrawing money from an ATM when he was attacked by a robber. Luckily, two men saw the attack and came to his rescue. However, these weren’t just any men – they were veterans of the United States military. David Hale and Chad McClain both served in the Armed Forces, but were strangers before this incident
The two men wrestled the victim free from the attacker. Mr. Hale stayed with the victim while Mr. McClain chased the assailant, cornered him, and kept him there until police arrived. While many in Cincinnati are hailing the veterans as heroes, they said they were just doing what anyone would do. Thanks to their assistance, the police apprehended the criminal and he is currently in jail on $250,000 bond.
What makes this story even more interesting is that Mr. McClain is homeless and Mr. Hale spent many years being homeless before recently finding a permanent place to live. Not only did these men protect us and our freedom overseas, they continue to do so at home – even when they have no home to call their own. As citizens, we need to make sure we are not putting our returning veterans into bad situations. They took gunfire and bombs for us – the least we can do is make sure they have a roof over their head and a job to look forward to.
American Warehouse Systems and its employees are proud to support military veterans and their families. God Bless America!
