Today’s Star Spangled Salute honors a homeless veteran and the police officer that helped him find his way home.  For months, concerned people had called police about a man in a wheel chair who was hanging out near a busy intersection in Marietta, Georgia.  One day, despite living in a time where social distancing is keeping people apart, Officer Landon Brooks decided to get to know the man.  Turns out the homeless man in the wheelchair was a Veteran suffering from PTSD and a father who hadn’t seen his son in quite a while.  The Veteran admitted to Officer Brooks that he was ready to seek help, so Officer Brooks and a woman named Barbara who lived near by contacted numerous agencies and found the Veteran the long term help he needed.  Thank you Officer Brooks and Barbara for your compassion and thank you to the Veteran for your service.
