A Walker County deputy noticed a man walking with an oxygen tank from Jasper to Huntsville for a doctor’s appointment. He found out he was a disabled veteran, so he gave him a lift to the Cullman County line. A Cullman deputy picked him up and brought him to the Morgan County line where a Morgan County deputy took over. At the county line, a Madison County deputy then took him to his appointment. After an overnight stay, the deputies got this man back home.
