At Lowe's, the one thing they're building is goodwill. Hello, I'm Tony Perkins with the Family Research Council in Washington. As far as one military veteran is concerned, Lowe's hardware is giving people the tools to do good. The double amputee, who lost both of his legs on a land mine, was at a Lowe's store when his wheelchair fell apart. Michael Sulsona, who said he'd been waiting for a new wheelchair for the VA, was shopping when it collapsed. Some employees saw what happened and rushed to help him. "They took the wheelchair apart and replaced the broken parts, promising to "make everything like new." It took Lowe's 45 minutes to do what the government hadn't done in two years: give him a functional chair. "I kept thanking them," he wrote, "and all they could say was, 'It was our honor.'" It was a small sacrifice compared to the one Michael made for his country -- but a touching one nonetheless. Never stop improving, Lowe's says. And they certainly haven't.
