Special forces

Having designed his Pinewood Derby car as an Army tank and having recently watched the movie "Dolphin Tale" (where one of the characters gets injured in combat), Jack was inspired to draw this picture...

...which he then wanted to give to a soldier, himself. So after few phone calls, two trips to the VA Medical Center, and some special attention from the hospital's Chief of Health Administration Management & Revenue and his staff...

...Jack presented his picture to Mr. Nelson, an Army veteran we got to meet and talk to.

On our drive back to school, I asked Jack what his favorite part of our visit was. He shrugged his shoulders but said, "One thing I do know, is everyone in there was nice."
