Caroline House: Michigan Farmer Helps Homeless Veterans

According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), there are around 40,000 homeless veterans in our country. In Lapeer, Michigan, Beck’s customer and Vietnam veteran, Pat Bell, is working to reduce that number by operating a homeless shelter on one of his farms.

The shelter is a relatively new effort for Pat, but multiple life experiences over the years lead him on this journey. It all started when Pat served in the Marines during the Vietnam War.
