On Christmas Eve, a dear friend had a doctor's appointment at the VA Clinic in Chicago Heights. When he came out of the clinic, he discovered his car was gone. Someone had stolen his 1986 Chevrolet Caprice.
The employees at the clinic were phenomenal. Even the doctor came out of his office to see what he could do to help. No one could believe someone could do this on Christmas Eve.
Sure, his car was 27 years old, but this was his only means of transportation. Now, he will have to ask for rides or walk!
This Vietnam vet has been down on his luck for a while. He even had to borrow $20 for gas money to get to the clinic. This incident will impact his life even harder. He already lives in a 35-year-old mobile home with no heat and working appliances. He lives on Social Security and food stamps. Now his car has been taken away.
The person who stole his car on Christmas Eve has no idea what he has done to this person!
What kind of person does this on Christmas Eve?
