Doug Gore shared this photo of a special parking area for veterans at the Lowe’s home improvement store in Gonzales.

His post caught on like wildfire, as it was widely shared on Facebook.

When reached, Gore graciously shared the photo for publication, and some of his thoughts on the display.

 “It’s heartwarming to see a big company take a small step to show they care about those who lost their lives to give us the freedoms we take advantage of today,” he said.

 “I am a veteran. I support God, country, and family. I just wish others would do the same,” he said.
