A National Guardsman lost both legs in Iraq, but found a new mission helping others.
It was a life-altering injury, but from the beginning, Dale Beatty had a positive attitude about it.
Beatty founded Purple Heart Homes after his community helped build him a home, giving thanks for his service. He realized that many veterans didn’t receive such support, so he and his war buddy created the organization that has modified or helped provide homes to disabled veterans of all generations.
“The whole community helping me, and working alongside me, it was such a good feeling,” said Beatty, now 34.
Could he do the same for others and keep the good feeling going?
