Bernie Marcus is a great American

Bernie Marcus, the co-founder of Home Depot, is opening his own checkbook to help cover the cost of treatment for veterans at Atlanta’s Shepherd Spinal Center:

Marcus got involved in January after he heard of a soldier who was treated at the Shepherd Center and was improving, but faced the loss of funding. “It angered me,” said Marcus, a co-founder of Home Depot and now a billionaire philanthropist. “It is disgraceful and it is not something that we should have to tolerate in this country.”

I don’t know about you, but I plan to go spend some money at Home Depot tomorrow.
