The requests often are simple and inexpensive — a new television or recliner, a fishing boat, a trip to a baseball game. But every time the Disabled Veterans Wish Foundation of Indiana fulfills the wishes of Hoosier veterans, it makes a difference.
Since 2010, the organization has helped dozens of veterans, many of whom have been diagnosed with terminal illnesses.
“It’s set up like the children’s Make-a-Wish Foundation, where we give wishes to disabled and terminally ill veterans in Indiana,” founder David Hall said. “The first wish we granted was for a lift chair to a World War II veteran. There are a lot of organizations that provide necessary items; we like to provide items the veterans want.”
