CULLMAN COUNTY, AL (WBRC)
Jeremy Hogan has a history of helping fellow Marines.
In his spare time, he makes American flags out of wood and gifts them to fellow soldiers and veterans.

And now he's a man on a mission. A mission to help a fellow brother. A man he has just met Thursday but one he shares an immediate bond with.

"I walked in. It was just one of those things where you know the gentleman is in straight distress and needed anything and everything I could do for him," Hogan said.

Hogan heard about former Marine Corporal Ken Beasley at a local grocery store. Beasley is an amputee veteran who is struggling with health and home issues. So, Hogan did what he knows best as a Marine.

"I didn't even tell my wife I was coming over here. I ran over here and was just going to see what supplies I needed and was going to get him help and build a ramp," said Hogan.
