Here is the link to the article.

They wanted a good looking guy for the picture and I was available.

Very cool! Glad you got some recognition for the job you're doing and the Vets are getting a little better ride.

Oh, and you left "Modest" out of the good looking guy sentence... :poke:

I would think that is a very rewarding job. And the stories you hear!

That is a great job you are doing and I know the Vet's appreciate it. Plus a little recognition doesn't hurt.

Some of the stories I hear sound kinda far fetched. Like the ones about being a Navy Seal in Cambodia in the '60's. Of course thier records have been lost or sealed so they can't prove anything. Or their records were burned up in the fire at the National Records Center in St. Louis.

I just smile and agree with them.

I'm sure there are many self proclaimed "Rambo" types (in their minds), but the real hero's of service are usually pretty quiet about it. Thanks for being a helping hand to them all.
BTW....back when I did motorcycle/ATV repair on the side, you would not believe (well, guess you would too) all the stories I'd hear about a Honda CB350 or similar small bikes doing 150mph! Like you, I just said "WOW" and went on about my business.
