DICKSON CITY, Pa. -- Thousands on Facebook shared a picture of a veteran sitting by himself in the rain outside a Walmart in Dickson City.
In the post, the veteran's wife says he was made to sit out in the rain and not in the covered area of the store.
One day later, Manuel Griffin was in front of the store again--this time in the sun--collecting donations for service members.
The veteran wouldn't talk with Newswatch 16 on camera. He friend David Ragan knows why.
“He is going to do what he has to do for his VFW, and he wants to make sure he is representing them the same way we did when we wore the uniform,” Ragan said.
