Local Korean War Veteran Awarded a New Roof

The 501c3 organization, “Vettes for Vets” , surprised local Korean War Era Veteran, Lloyd Badman with a new roof, flag pole and appliances, this past Saturday. It just so happened to be the day after Mr. Badman’s 91st Birthday.

Mr. Badman has had a rough past few years battling cancer and ultimately having to have his stomach removed. 

On Oct 14th at 10:00AM, Corvette enthusiasts met at the Coffee County Administrative Plaza. A Coffee County Sheriff’s Deputy and Manchester City Police escort accompanied the caravan over to Mr. Badman’s house to knock on his door and surprise him with a check for the repairs and additions.

The Vettes for Vets Organization began in Charleston, SC and has spread to 8 states. 

Vettes for Vets started as a helping hand volunteer group by Jason Dores in 2021. The group is comprised of Corvette owners and enthusiasts across the southeast.

Mr. Rick Kapp is the Tennessee Director of Vettes for Vets and happens to live in Manchester himself.
