Our Wheel Chair Project - "Providing Mobility to Americas Veterans!"

River Rat's chari.It all started when a friend of one of our members ( who is himself bound to a power chair) wanted to donate his deceased father's ( a WWll Veteran and Bronze Star Recipient ) power chai to a deserving veteran.  We picked up the chair and took it to one of our sponsors, DeeRay's Autobody in Shelley, Idaho. Brett Waters, the shop owner said he would be more than happy to help us ready this chair for one of American's Veterans. Brett and his boys tore the chair down, and completely cleaned and lubed were needs, replaced, or refurbished the associated parts. He chair was in sad need of upholstery work so Brett called his friend Randy Walker of Walker's Upholstery in Basalt, Idaho and asked for help. Randy also happily accepted the challenge. 

The chair when finished, was painted "Huey Green" stenciled with "VVA Chapter 972" in military white lettering and emblazoned with the VVA logo. Then upholstered with memory foam and black leather. Period correct but disarmed, M16 rounds were place on the rear wheel hubs, A VVA 5" Patch was sewn into the back of the headrest.

The completed chair was delivered to a Veteran Navy Seal, "River Rat" who is a resident of the Idaho State Veterans Home, Pocatello, Idaho. There is more information and photos of Patrick's (River Rat"  Click Here For The Details!
