STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. —
Three employees at a Lowe’s store on New York’s Staten Island stayed well past closing time last week to repair a Vietnam veteran’s wheelchair that he asked the Veterans Administration to replace two years ago.
"They said, ‘You’re not leaving till it’s like new again,’" Michael Sulsona, the double-amputee veteran, said. The wheelchair apparently broke down in the store.
Sulsona, 62, who said up to that point he heard nothing from the VA about a replacement chair, but felt uplifted by the workers at the store. He sent a letter to his local newspaper, The Staten Island Advance, to publicly thank the employees who stayed at the store well past 10 p.m. and didn’t charge him anything.
"I kept thanking them and all they could say was, ‘It was our honor,’" he wrote. "The actions of these three employees at Lowe’s showed me there are some who still believe in stepping to the plate. … Someone needed help and they felt privileged to be given the opportunity."

"I kept thanking them and all they could say was, ‘It was out honor’"
- Michael Sulsona


Sulsona, an ex-Marine, said he lost his legs in 1971 when he stepped on a landmine in Vietnam. After his letter to the newspaper, the VA got word of Sulsona and sent him a brand-new wheelchair Tuesday.
Sulsona’s new chair arrived in the wake of months of scandal in the VA’s health care unit over complaints nationwide of long wait times and poor patient care.

Sustainable is not about hardware, it is about values.
