Workshops for Warriors helped a Navy veteran when a local business honored him for his
service to the country. The company, which specializes in Volkswagen
camper vans, did a complete renovation of the veteran's vehicle — for free. "The company spent more than 50 hours giving the Vanagon a complete
overhaul, renovating the cooling system, suspension, wheels and tires,
brakes and steering system. Ten employees helped," reports a recent news article.
