Eric’s Truck

In keeping with the theme of “service” this Veterans’ Day week, I’d like to share a story about what some Air Force firefighters did for a young boy recently.

That’s when firefighters with the 673rd Civil Engineer Squadron at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson stepped up and created Engine No. 7, a brother to the department’s six full-sized trucks. The red fire engine fashioned to fit around Eric’s wheelchair mesmerized children and had adults pulling out cellphones for photos Friday at the JBER hospital’s trick-or-treat event.

“Service” as a core value is another great reason to hire our veterans!

You’ll want to read the rest here. Be sure to check out the pictures, they’re heart warming!
