Thanks to Operation Homefront, amputee Marine and wife renewed vows in all-expenses-paid dream wedding; TX vendors donated services for the big day.
"Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit that provides emergency financial and other assistance to wounded warriors and their families . . .will host a dream wedding for U.S. Marine Corps Cpl. Patrick Walker and Taylor Walker. . . . Online voters selected the Walkers to receive the wedding based on Cpl. Walker’s essay, submitted last August. Walker, who lost his leg in January 2011 after stepping on an improvised explosive device in the Sangin district of Afghanistan, explained in the winning essay how he and Taylor had married in August 2010 in Las Vegas because they could not afford a big wedding." -- the New Braufels (TX) Herald-Zeitung
