BRADENTON, Fla. -- A life-changing experience is the reason our next honoree became a volunteer.

A Vietnam veteran, Richard Wellenberger devotes his time at the VA clinic in Bradenton, where he lives; and at Tidewell Hospice, where he's involved in special ceremonies for fellow veterans.

He does it with compassion, and in spite of some real physical challenges.

ABC 7’s Bob Harrigan has his story:
