WAR VETERAN HELPS OTHERS
Dale Beatty is a war veteran with prostetic legs. While he was in the hospital, the nurse informed him that when a member of his church heard about his situation, he decided to help. He persuaded the builders to build Dale an all new wheelchair-acessible home. This is when Dale had the idea of purple heart homes.

Dale Beatty consulted his war buddy John Gallina, to recruit builders and help him financially with the buisness. Purple Heart Homes is run buy donated money and donated supplies. It is a non-profit orginization, and together they have built homes for hundreds of disabled war veterans world-wide.
