All of our military personnel risk their lives every day to keep us safe; however, when they retire, the mental scars of war don’t easily heal. Veterans have fought hard for us but sometimes their life is not perfect and they may need some help in return. United States Army Veteran Jim Wolf has struggled with poverty and alcoholism for decades. When the army veteran was approached by Dégagé Ministries regarding a makeover, he agreed to participate in a physical transformation.
Dégagé Ministries then worked with a local video producer, RobBlissCreative, to help break down stereotypes about the homeless. His transformation is amazing and towards the end of the video, he looks like a businessman and appears ready to turn his life around.
