Transformation Video of Homeless Vet is Stunning

On this Veterans Day, we take a moment to say ‘Thank you!’ to the thousands of men and women who have or are still serving our country at home and overseas.

A shocking number of vets come home damaged and in need of help that seems non-existant, and it’s easy to cast off these individuals…until you watch this video.

I wrote last week about a random panhandler that I passed judgment on and walked by without helping.

Countless times I have walked past a homeless person and judged them out of fear and a lack of understanding. The truth is, many times homeless individuals are vets who served our country, and were under-served in return.

You see someone on the street with raggedy, torn-up clothes, unkempt hair, and a dirty face and you assume they are a lost cause, and think – wrongly and for no reason – that they might even hurt you.

But what if we saw that person in a different light? What if that person saw his or herself in a different light?

A filmmaker in Michigan filmed 54-year-old U.S. Army Veteran Jim Wolf’s dramatic transformation.

The video states in the beginning that ‘for decades, Jim has struggled with poverty, homelessness and alcoholism.’

By the end, we learn that Jim has since applied for Veterans housing and is attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings.

It is incredible what a difference a clean suit and a haircut can make in a person’s life. Sometimes a new attitude and sense of respect can turn everything around.

Thank you to all military members, past and present, and military families for your service and sacrifice. You are incredible people.
