On this Independence Day, we would like to remember the men and women who have served in our armed forces. Today we are sharing the stories of recent recipients of car donations: military veterans. These veterans have honorably served their country and we are so happy to be able to provide them with much needed transportation and the new feeling of independence that owning a car provides. Let us all remember to thank our country’s military veterans on the 4th of July.
Daniel E. – U.S. Air Force Veteran
Daniel joined the Air Force to serve his country and make a living. He served as both a Freight Manager and Air Traffic Controller. After serving in the military, he started a second career in HVAC. When the company shut down, he was unable to continue in the industry. Transportation has become a real hardship for him and his family. Daniel has taken on a new challenge and gone back to school for teaching, but his wife has to wait 3 hours after her job at Wendy’s until he can pick her up.
On June 3rd, 2014, Daniel received a 2001 Infiniti QX4 and is very grateful. “A vehicle would be such a blessing to my family. It would be the nicest thing anyone has ever done for us! I can get back on my feet by teaching and give back to those who have helped me.”
Freddie N. – U.S. Navy Veteran
Freddie served four years in the US Navy as a Ship Serviceman. “It was the opportunity of a lifetime and a chance to see the world and make my mom proud,” he said. After service, he went to plumbing school. Unfortunately, he was hurt and could no longer do the bending required of a plumber. His dream is to own his own clothing store, but in the meantime he is working as a barber and selling clothes to local venues.
On June 3rd, 2014, Freddie received a 2008 Lincoln MKZ in Texas. “This vehicle is going to change my life! I almost cried when I got the call that I am receiving a vehicle. I promise to always give back to others.”
