A Christmas Miracle for a Veteran

I woke up today with a heavy heart. I have a friend, a veteran, a very good person.  He informed me that he has another hip to replace. Since I have known him he has had hands,shoulders and hips replaced.  It is very hard on him.  He never asks for any help.  Our small group at the bar is his family.  I have a dream for him.  A new used vehicle.  His truck is a wreck.  cardboard in place of windows. It breaks down almost monthly. It is not worth putting another penny into.  But he is on a fixed budget.  With his up coming surgery and winter, he has some serious struggles ahead.  He jokes frequently about his truck.  It has rusted out almost around the entire perimeter of the vehicle.  He jokes that his truck is dead. Because everytime he moves it there is an outline of rust and body parts on the ground! like a dead persons outline. My dream is to give him a new used vehicle. One that will make him happy and feel safe in our harsh winters. Please let's all chip in and get our veteran some new wheels for Christmas. It will make your heart feel good!
