Firehouse Subs in Orland Park held their grand opening last weekend.
A major goal for owners William and Christine Vanderbilt is to support the community, including veterans.
During their grand opening, members from AllenForce, a non-profit focused on helping veterans transition to civilian life, demonstrated one of their programs, Healthy Minds Healthy Bodies. The program helps pair veterans with resources they need to physically, mentally and emotionally adjust to life after combat.
While at Firehouse Subs, Luis Flores with HMHB demonstrated an advanced motorized chair with tank treads, capable of traversing an array of different grounds, including snow.
