WWII Veteran Herb Muskin Suffers Tragic Auto Crash

Donation protected
***update - unfortunately, Herbert Muskin has passed away due to his injuries from the accident. Donations still needed and appreciated to help his wife Sherry. Thank you ***

Imagine surviving World War II and living to the age of 101, only to be injured by a stolen vehicle being chased by the police. This is what happened to Herbert Muskin, a World War II veteran living in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Herbert Muskin was previously in good health and was even still driving. He was fearless and it is no surprise to anyone who knows him that he was still going strong at 101 years old. He was somewhat of a local legend and people would recognize him around town and thank him for his service. Before retiring in Las Vegas, he practiced dentistry in New York. His 101st birthday was covered by Fox5 Vegas:

On March 1, 2023, he was driving home after shopping at Costco with his wife and was struck by a stolen vehicle traveling 80 miles per hour that was being chased by the police. The story was covered extensively in the Las Vegas area news. Given Herbert's age and the intensity of the crash, he should have been killed, but Herbert was always a soldier and a survivor.

Herbert Muskin has severe injuries including a broken neck. He was unresponsive at first but now he is showing signs of communication and life. Herbert has a long recovery ahead and he deserves the best medical care available. Herbert and his wife Sherry have scant funds saved and never expected to face this type of tragedy. Herbert was always a proud man and never needed anyone else for support before, but now here's a chance to show your appreciation for Herbert's service. Please help support Herbert and his family (he and his wife Sherry are married for 67 years) throughout this difficult time and pray for Herbert's recovery. Any donation, no matter how small, is appreciated, and even just sharing this link would help. Thank you and God bless.
