The Star Spangled Salute is brought to you by Ideal Feet
Today’s Star Spangled Salute honors Army Veteran Whitney Thompson. 4 years ago, Whitney was getting out of a domestic violence relationship, was homeless and not sure what was going to happen next. Thanks to the Mesa Chamber of Commerce and the Mesa Veteran Resource Center, she was gifted a car and it turned her life around. Now she wants to pay it forward with hopes of turning another Veteran’s life around. Whitney now has a great job at the VA and has bought 38 acres of land that she can call hers. Now, meet Marine Corps Veteran James Mitchell. James is having a hard time but is trying. He needs reliable transportation to get back and forth to work, which will allow him to travel and see his daughter. Whitney says she doesn’t know all that James has gone through but he needs help and the new vehicle represents possibilities and knows it can change his life too. Enjoy the new wheels James and THANK YOU James and Whitney for your service.
