"I just wanted to tell you how West Michigan Veterans Ranch has helped my family when my husband John was sick and dying. We had been trying for a while to get a wheelchair ramp for about 2-3 months from the VA, but the park where we live was giving us a hassle about the ramp from the VA because it was metal. My sister-in-law got a hold of TV8 about it and it aired May 2017.
West Michigan Veterans Ranch along with Hometown Battles got a hold of us, they wanted to build a wheelchair ramp & deck for us. I was a little careful because we didn't have money for anything. But they came and talked to us and told us it wouldn't cost us anything at all. They brought in carpenters and volunteers, and they already had donations that took care of everything, permits and all.
They got volunteers to work with them and it took them less than 2 weeks from start to finish. They worked morning and night, they were all so very kind and caring, even after all was said and done. They were still around right up to and after my husband passed. When it was near the end they stayed and were here for when he passed. They helped me so very much with the funeral and everything else. In fact, my husband and I called them our lifesavers. We were so blessed by them for everything they did and still do. They are the real heroes.
