George surprises three-time Purple Heart recipient Corporal Sherman Watson in Compton, CA.
Compton, CA - We've found our vet.
With help from some incredible individuals and organizations, the George to the Rescue team is ready to transform the Compton, California home of Corporal Sherman Watson. Corporal Watson, a three-time Purple Heart recipient, is a proud husband and father of two. The humble hero was shocked when George surprised him with news of the rescue on Thursday evening.
After weeks of scouting stories throughout the country, we're thrilled to be participating in our first California project. We're especially excited to be working with inspirational veteran support groups like Got Your Six, Team Rubicon, and Vet Hunters Project.
It's time to bring the Rescue spirit to the West Coast!
