Hometown Hero uses business to benefit veterans

DECATUR -- Everyone knows the war in Afghanistan is winding down, and while that's a good thing, it also means a lot more of those who are injured overseas will be coming home.
DECATUR -- Everyone knows the war in Afghanistan is winding down, and while that's a good thing, it also means a lot more of those who are injured overseas will be coming home. Besides government assistance, there are groups to help those who are hurt with wounds you can and can't see.

An area Hometown Hero is raising money to make sure they get the benefits they need. Matt Vest spent 20 years in the Army National Guard. He helps active military members get their benefits. He's never been to combat, but that's why he's using his business to help vets who have been there.

Vest is co-owner of V&M Digital DJ Service. This month, he and his partner decided to do a benefit. They're raising money for the Wounded Warrior Project.
