John Hanczaryk never thought he would need to ask for help, he was a typical young man going to college studying computer science with a promising career. With rising education costs, he realized that while trying to pay off student loans and support his family, he was coming up short each month. To help the family through this time, he decided to join the Army, which would pay his education costs, and while in the Army, he could support both his country and his family and have a new career.
He did not count on being injured on his tour of duty in Afghanistan. His injuries left his body broken and battered putting him through years of operations and rehabilitation. In 2009, he was declared unfit to work because of his injuries, and as time passed, he saw the money they had saved for a wedding slip away due to paying medical bills, kids’ clothes, rent, and food costs.
John reached out to Keystone Wounded Warriors, a nonprofit organization that seeks to honor the daily sacrifices made by the brave men and women in all branches of the United States Military to see if they could help with making his dream come true.
Glasbern Inn, a quintessential Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania romantic country inn and farm fresh dining restaurant has hosted hundreds of PA romantic weddings and has always supported the troops with special rates for veterans. When they heard John and Randi’s story, they spent no time deciding to get to work and arrange the dream wedding that they have hoped for since they were first engaged.
Glasbern Inn, our romantic PA inn, will continue to update you on the progress of the wedding set for September 16, 2012.
