USMC Life: A Marine veteran was forced to stand outside in the cold and rain, while collecting money for Toys for Tots, in front of an Ohio Walmart store.
People across the nation who got wind of the story are now outraged that the vet couldn’t seek shelter inside — while temperatures dropped to the low 40’s in Medina over the weekend.
Someone snapped a photo of the vet and posted it on social media with the caption: “He can bleed and die but not stand inside.” The post went viral within hours.
A group of vets were collecting money for Toys for Tots and the local VFW when they asked to go inside.
But the store manager refused to let them in, according to WKYC. The manager told the local station it was against the company’s solicitation policy to allow the vets to be inside collecting donations for the children’s charity. more here
