Vehicles for Vets Finalist #3: Wesley Frost – Air Force
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 third finalist is Wesley Frost. Wesley was nominated by his wife Linda, who writes:
Wesley is actually my husband. I’m nominating him because I feel he could use a break, and deserves something good to happen to him. He is a retired veteran. He served 27 years in the Air Force, serving both active duty and reserve time. Wes is driving an older Jeep Grand Cherokee that is falling apart right in front of us. Every couple of months, it’s another couple hundred dollars. He is very hard working, and taking care of our 11 year old twins, as well as me. I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2015, and due to that and some other medical problems, I am no longer able to work, so we are now relying on one income. We inherited a small amount of money 2 years ago, and both of our vehicles were shot. Because he worries about me breaking down, especially if I have the kids, and because I rely on an electric scooter to get around, he insisted that we use that money for me to get a new (used) vehicle. As much as he wants and needs one for work, he was more worried about me and the kids. He works 40+ hours at work, then comes home to several more hours of house work that I can’t do (inside & out). He was, and still is, very proud to have served in the USAF. He tells stories almost daily, and still keeps in touch with some of his coworkers from when he served, and he’s been out for 12 years now. He’s given freely for his country, and now for his family. It’s time for him to see some appreciation for his service.
