Saturday, Sons of the American Revolution thanked veterans by giving ten Purple Heart recipients, who are transitioning back to civilian life after their injuries, tool boxes worth $1,000 each.
The effort is ongoing, with a promise to get tool boxes into the hands of every wounded war hero in the nation:
Brandi Hootsell opens the tool box her husband received last year from the group.
“It came packed,” she said. “There’s a saw in here, saw blades, gloves. They’re nice tools, too.”
