When veterans die, their families can be left in the lurch. This veteran stepped up to help.

When a “battle buddy” committed suicide, veteran Troy Walker stepped up to help cover his funeral expenses after life insurance and veterans organizations refused.

Walker wanted to make sure that all fallen veterans are honored in burial, whether they die in battle, after leaving the service or by succumbing to their emotional war wounds, and that their families are taken care of. Now, his nonprofit Dog Tag Furniture gives more than 90 percent of its proceeds from selling apparel and flags to help veterans and their families.
