Vehicles For Vets Finalist #2: Geoffrey Walker – Army
Once again, the Basil Family of Dealerships has partnered with the Veterans One Stop Center of Western New York to launch “Vehicles for Vets”, a summer-long promotion in which a veteran or active serving military member can win a new vehicle.
Every week, one nomination will be chosen and their story highlighted on Wednesday morning. During the final week, the nine finalists who were selected will be invited to Buffalo Riverworks on Friday, August 18th for the revealing of the grand prize winner!
There will be a final random selection for the winner of the vehicle. Winner chooses from one of six brand new cars or $21,000 in Basil Bucks towards a used vehicle. The person who nominates the winner will receive $1,000 cash!
Our second finalist is Geoffrey Walker, who was nominated by his wife Jill Walker. Jill writes:
Geoff is my awesome husband and the father of my 2 children. He joined the US Army in 2010 while I was in grad school. He served a tour in Iraq. In 2013 he reupped his contract with the National Guard right before we got married. He is my hero. He is a supportive husband and an amazing father. He is very proud to serve our country and works to instill the importance of patriotism in our young children. He is always first to give of himself and never asks for anything in return. He has the biggest heart of anyone I know. Times have, at times, been difficult for our family financially as I work my way through school, and Geoff is currently without a vehicle of his own. We have been borrowing his mother’s car as she is currently unable to drive. We have slowly been putting money aside for him to purchase a car, but the process has been slower than we would like. He is always putting his want for a car aside to help with other things. He is a completely selfless individual.
