Medtronic of Peace Trade Port NH
People of NH should be made aware of Businesses such as Medtronic for what they do out side the walls of their business. Medtronic’s sent forty or more volunteers to the VRC to help Homeless Combat Veterans have a better life. The unforeseen results of the day were when a Combat Veteran that lived in the back woods (in a tent) on the property in isolation for over 1 year watched the Medtronic volunteer help. The next day when I was sitting by the fire pit (Medtronic’s built) alone the Veteran came out and introduced him self to me. Stephen then handed me a cell phone and asked me to call the number on it. (A family member gave Stephen the phone years earlier and told him when he was ready to call.) I charged the phone and called. The next day some one picked Stephen up and took him to a VA hospital in their home state. Stephen told me all the people on the property to help veterans made him realize his being Proud of what he has done in combat are not wrong as others so strongly implied when he first came home. Stephen lived in the woods across NH for over 10 years doing odd jobs for people to earn money but afraid the innocent things other’s do would cause a spontaneous reaction that kept him alive “in country”. A blessing that came from Medtronic’s day of volunteer could never have been seen as a result. A combat Veterans life was saved this day.
The reason for this letter is the workers of Medtronic continue to this day to show up at the VRC property at 101 Stepping Stone Rd to help the Veterans. I also learned from Town of Lee NH residents that Medtronic’s before they came to the property Vetted the VRC and got high reviews from everyone they talked to, including town employees and neighbors. The VRC is a nonprofit where every penny donated goes to helping Homeless combat Veterans. There is no pay or reimbursement to people working on the property it is 100% volunteer. In 1974, I was a homeless combat veteran for three years and another combat veteran helped me so it is my turn to help today’s homeless combat veterans.
Thank You, Medtronic!
