Texas Hold'em players at the Legion Post raise $12,000 for Disabled Veteran

by Barbara Rogers

They may be tough at the table, but poker players can be a great group when you need their help. Texas Hold'em players at the Legion Post, a group with plenty of generosity in their hearts, helped Vietnam veteran Jesus Quintana of Eastside Indianapolis, a double amputee who loves to hunt, but can’t cross fields and the forest in a regular wheelchair. Legion Post played the game for Jesse and the $12,000 they raised gave him the perfect alternative to a wheelchair, an all-terrain wheelchair with higher clearance and tank like treads that can reach his favorite hunting blind. Jesse lost his legs in combat in 1968 near the Ho Chi Minh trail when an artillery shell exploded and accepted his physical limitation pretty quickly. Jesse said he has adapted, accepting the life he was destined to live. Receiving three Purple Hearts and a Bronze Star for his service to our country, Jesse continues to serve the public good by volunteering at a hospital and serving as a chaplain with the Marine Corps League.
