A Lowe’s hardware store in Abilene, Texas, is feeling the praise online after hiring a veteran and his service dog.

 Air Force veteran Clay Luthy was having difficulty finding a job due to his service dog named Charlotte, who accompanies him at all times. But while other companies were unable to hire Luthy and Charlotte, the hardware store stepped in and offered the two a job. 

“We were interviewing people for his position and he was one of the applicants. And so he showed up for the interview and he had Charlotte with him,” Jay Fellers, a human resource manager at Lowe’s, told KRBC.

LONDON — An 89-year-old war veteran has been inundated with job offers after his ad looking for work to save him from “dying of boredom” went viral. 

Joe Bartley from Paignton, Devon, retired 6 years ago, but discovered that unemployed life wasn’t for him. 

Suffering from boredom and loneliness, he put an advert in his local newspaper, the Herald Express, hoping to find something to occupy his time and allow him to meet new people.
