Chance Encounter Spurs Officer to Help Buy a $2000 Chair For Vietnam Vet


Officer Jordan Gaiche was patrolling the neighborhood on a chilly Monday night when he saw a man walking down the sidewalk in a tee-shirt and shorts.

Since the temperature was only 7º Fahrenheit, Gaiche pulled his cruiser over and asked the man if he needed any help. To his surprise, the man said that he was on his way to help a senior neighbor who had gotten stuck in his chair, “as he had done many times before.”

The man asked if Gaiche could help them, and the Wausau, Wisconsin police officer readily agreed.

“The elderly gentleman had gotten stuck in his recliner and appeared to be immobile and on oxygen,” says Gaiche. “It was evident that this chair was the place this man spent most of his time.”

After he and the neighbor fixed the senior’s chair, Gaiche lamented the debilitated state of the recliner.
