An 82 yr old disabled Marine Veteran Jim Potts contacted Mike Arnold of the Chronicle hoping to find help to do repairs on his home., unfortunately Mr. Potts never left a phone number. That did not stop Mr. Arnold he located this Veteran in need and put him in touch with COAP.. Two of our members volunteered  "VP" Daviid  "Croc"  Praet and member Paul Hines  took action and in a matter of 3 hrs completed the necessary repairs on Mr. Potts home. But thats not the end of this Story, Jim was so grateful and moved by the outpoor and quick response he received  that he handed our VP "Croc" a check for fifty dollars and asked that we use it to help another Veteran. God Bless you Mr. Potts and Thank You for your Service to our Country.
