The requests are often 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, said David Hall, founder and president.
Since 2010, the organization has helped nearly 30 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,” 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.”
