Truck For Work and Travel

Good morning/afternoon. My name is Damian Weidemann, I am currently a senior in high school and am planning on graduating to go into the Army as a Cyberntics Operations Specialist, or (if all goes well with football), attend a college with a major in aerodynamics and then go into the Air Force as a pilot. My family has never quite been in the best of situations when it comes to finances. I have been attempting to save up for a truck but as things come in life, I usually use my money to buy things like my most recent purchase of a computer for school. As things get harder because of the reduced amount of work I am getting due to COVID and increasingly long school work, I have been unable to save up the money necessary. I have my license, but am currently unable to drive my parents vehicles because my dad takes his to work during the day and my mom needs hers because she has recently had a baby. I don't like asking other people for help, I like to try and keep financial matters to myself and attempt to solve them on my own, but I have come down to my last straw. I am asking for enough money to be able to buy a (hopefully) 2003 Ford F-250 Super Duty. I would like to get this truck specifically because of the significance it has played in my life, as my step-dad owned one before he had to sell it when we moved down to Texas, and before that we owned a 2003 Ford Excursion. The only reason I am hoping for a truck and not a car is because my step-dad and I work on landscaping and Christmas lights in the winter together, and his F-150 short bed can't haul everything we need all the time, so I'd like to get something that would not only allow me to drive a truck I love but also be able to assist my dad in his work to help support the family. This would help me and my parents greatly, as we are currently trying to find a way with finances so that they could help me with getting a vehicle, and on top of that my 15 year old sister who turns 16 in January. If my goal is met, I will not leave y'all in vain, rather keep you updated as I am going through the process of searching for, purchasing, and after the purchase of the truck. I know that if I were to support someone, I would want to keep updated with how things were going. Thank you very much for taking your time to read this, and if you have donated even as much as a dollar, I would like to thank you very much for your help
