On this Veteran's Day, a Michigan filmmaker and ministry group in Grand Rapids have teamed up to produce one of the most shared videos on the Internet.

U.S. Army Veteran Jim Wolf
, who has struggled with alcoholism, poverty and homelessness for decades, agreed to a makeover under the watch of Rob Bliss and Degage Ministries, a group offering help to homeless and disadvantaged families.
