Meet Arlen Baumgartner, a US Air Force Veteran who was the recent winner of the All States Salutes Our Soldiers walk-in shower giveaway. Arlen was nominated by his daughter Amber, both of Mayfield, Kansas. Arlen pursued a career in aerospace after his time in the Air Force and was also a full-time farmer. He now has degenerative nerve damage in his back and must use a walker to get around which has made it difficult to use the old bathtub in their home.
All States Home Improvement team replaced that tub with a much safer, easy access walk-in shower with bench and handrail in Arlen’s home.
Arlen says, “It has been wonderful because I have handrails to hang on to with easy step-in access and I love the seat and is comfortable with it. I would recommend All States Home Improvement to anyone because I am mighty proud of the results.”
All States Salutes Our Soldiers is looking for local Wichita area veterans who need a home improvement project of new siding, windows, roof or walk-in shower.
Nominate a deserving veteran here, fill out an entry form, and submit a short essay of 350 words or less telling us about your veteran and how they could benefit from new siding, windows, or roof.
The winning essay will need to provide proof of service in the armed forces and ownership of the home. Must be 13 or older to nominate.
All States Home Improvement created the All States Salutes Our Soldiers program to find ways to say thank you and respectfully give back to the deserving veterans in our community. The owner of All States Home Improvement, Cris Keeter, proudly served in the Marines and is honored to provide this program to Salute Our Soldiers.
