Vehicles for Vets Finalist #4: Ann Pitt – 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 fourth finalist is Ann Pitt, who was nominated by her friend Laura. Laura writes:
Ann has been my sister-in-law’s best friend since high school. Ann’s father was a Holocaust survivor and very proud of his daughter’s time in the Air Force. After serving overseas for several tours she was finally stationed at Andrews Air Force Base. She was in the K- 9 unit training dogs to sniff out bombs and other dangers in Afghanistan. Her dog was a Belgian Malinios named Buddy. When she left the Air Force, she was allowed to bring Buddy home with her. I had the opportunity to see Ann and Buddy in action. They came over and she showed off some of Buddy’s skills. After Ann’s years in the Air Force and hearing about her successes overseas and realizing her trials and tribulations now that she’s home–she is deserving of being considered for the Basil Vehicles for Vets.
