O.B. – United States Navy / VetCar Success Story
Obadyah Y (OB) is a Navy veteran who is both a recipient and a loyal volunteer for VetCar. OB initially approached us to volunteer with VetCar so that he could generate community service hours to assist with an old legal issue. However, to really help us it was clear he needed a vehicle. It just so happened that we had a 1999 Chevy S-10 pickup that needed some TLC. OB was the perfect person for the truck because he enjoys working on cars and a pickup works perfect for that. Early on OB found that he really enjoyed working with VetCar and has always volunteered for more hours than required. When one of our VetCar clients has a problem with a car OB often serves as our in-house car doctor who makes house calls. He will go and check on the problem and frequently is able to diagnose it and fix the problem on the spot. Having the truck has made a big difference for OB by allowing him the ability to work with VetCar, to get to and from his VA appointments more easily, and most recently has allowed him to provide support to his fiancé who was recently released from a care facility. OB has been and continues to be a great volunteer and difference maker for the organization!
