Van to RI Air Force Veteran in Mystic CT
Work Vessels for vets, Inc. presented a van to SSGT Eric Betz, USAF/USAFR of Newport, Rhode Island on Tuesday November 22, 2016 at Valenti VW Auto Dealership in Mystic, Connecticut. The Betz family were so grateful and appreciative of this gesture of patriotism and generosity. Their former car is in need of engine repair making transportation a great challenge to get to work, school and other family needs.
"I can't believe this is happening to me. I served in Iraq and Afghanistan loading munitions onto fighter jets. And my family and I have lived in Japan, Guam, Utah and Arizona during my twelve years in the USAir Force. We have been welcomed back home to Newport, RI with our young daughter," said SSgt Eric Belz. "We are so very grateful."
Betz is completing his career studies in computer sciences at Rhode Island College and he hopes to work in the field of occupational safety for the military in the future.
