Country duo presents local veteran with new wheelchair


A local veteran was gifted with a new all-terrain wheelchair before the country duo Florida Georgia Line’s concert in North Charleston on Thursday evening.

Money for the wheelchair was raised by The Independence Fund, which helps wounded veterans regain their mobility.  It was the national non-profit’s second donation of a wheelchair this year.

“To put [veterans] on a device that gets them to do those things that they’ve done their whole lives, but can’t anymore because of the sacrifice that they've made for this country is humbling,”Independence Fund Board Chair Richard Jadick said.

Florida Georgia Line is an ambassador to the Independence Fund.  The veteran, and his family, met and took pictures with the country duo before their concert at the North Charleston Coliseum.
