DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Arthur Miller was drafted right out of high school into the army where he visited 17 countries and spent 21 years in the service.

But recently, he retired from Fort Rucker in aviation where he worked as a traffic controller.

“I’ve had some good times, bad times I done a lot of stuff that most people never done and don’t want to do,” said Arthur Miller, the past state commander for DAV.

Now, he’s doing exactly what he wants to do — by continuing to help those who made the ultimate sacrifice to serve the united states of America and their families.

“We do utility bills for veterans, car payments, two veterans trucks we had to repair, car we had to fix, medical bills, funeral bill,” Miller said.

They also partner with other nonprofits to lend a helping hand to the homeless by providing sleeping bags.

Miller said all of this is possible thanks to the community purchasing food from the tent and making donations.

“It makes you feel good when you help people because not everybody is blessed as everybody else,” Miller said.

The Wiregrass area consistently shows love for veterans.
