NBC 10 pays it forward to a woman who supports veterans' causes
Her foundation resulted in the renovation of the West Warwick High School track and more than $26,000 in scholarships for local students --- and more.
Lynn St. Germain-Lundh is a champion for local veterans, having started the Sgt. Brian St. Germain Foundation in memory of her son.
"Brian was killed in Iraq in 2006. Brian served with the Unites States Marine Corps," St. Germain-Lundh said.
A West Warwick home, owned and operated by another great nonprofit called Operation Stand Down Rhode Island, houses veterans and it's named for Brian.
"I think he would be proud of how I've handled his death," St. Germain-Lundh said.
Those in charge at Operation Stand Down describe St. Germain-Lundh as being reliable and loyal to all veterans' needs.
"When we see Lynn doing what she does, knowing that she's already sacrificed, it does inspire the rest of us as well," said Erik Wallin of Operation Stand Down.
In recognition of her efforts and Operation Stand Down, NBC 10 is paying it forward with a donation of $500 to St. Germain-Lundh.
"That's amazing," said St. Germain-Lundh.
