A recently retired veteran from the North Carolina state announced that he will be using his lottery win to honor his deceased son. He stated that their community has done so much for him and his family so now it is his turn to thank them. He stated that he will be using the $10 million lottery prize money to give back to the community.
The name of the retired veteran is Sergeant Alvin Mack II who was a part of the marine corps. The Marine Master has recently retired from the military in May of 2020. The retired veteran had a 19-year-old son who was posted at the Arlington Cemetery, serving as the Air Force Honor Guard.
The same month the veteran retired from the military, he received the news that his son had passed away. Therefore, after winning the $10 million prize, the retired veteran has decided to use the money to keep the memories of his son alive.
The retired veteran stated that he had only one son and he was the entire world to him. While talking about himself, retired Sergeant Alvin Mack II stated that he has always believed in luck. However, this is for the first time he thinks that it is more than luck that he has won the prize.
The retired Sergeant stated that when his son passed away, he and his family were not in a good shape financially. He stated that it was that time when the ‘Fisher House Foundation’ helped them out. They provided him and his family with housing donations to survive through the hard times.
He stated that now is the time for him to show the ‘Fisher House Foundation’ how much they matter to him and his family. Mr. Alvin Mack II plans on donating the prize money to the ‘Fisher House Foundation’ in honor of his late son.
