Scooter Store helps to honor vets

Thursday, May 31, 2007

WASHINGTON - The Scooter Store participated in a new program called "Honor Flight" by donating dozens of power wheelchairs and scooters to help disabled veterans visit the WWII Memorial on April 21. Employees of The Scooter Store also volunteered their time to attend the event and help veterans. "Many of these senior heroes break down and cry when they are offered an opportunity to see their memorial," said Earl Morse, a physician assistant and retired U.S. Air Force captain who conceived the program. "Many are in their 80s, their health is failing, and they don't have the resources to make the trip. Our program makes it possible."
