When Cody Nichols discovered that someone had stolen several thousand dollars worth of equipment from his veteran-run landscaping business, he feared the worst for his employees.
The former Marine had started a company called Our Troops Services so he could hire fellow vets who were having trouble adjusting to civilian life. He and his employees normally work on fences, construction, and lawn care in Tulsa, Oklahoma – but their work came to a halt back in May when someone robbed them of their equipment.
The crew tried to fulfill their lawn contracts by using push mowers on acres and acres worth of greenery, but they soon fell behind on the work.
Little did they know, a nonprofit called Soldier’s Wish had heard about their predicament and had already begun rallying people to assist the small business.
