OUR FLAG DOES NOT FLY BECAUSE THE WIND BLOWS IT;
A Gold Star Dad’s Tribute to His Son
& OTHER FALLEN HEROES
My name is Mike Young and I am here to showcase the work I am doing on my late son’s truck as a mark of tribute to him and all others who died in the military.
I am currently in the process of restoring my son’s 58 Chevy Panel truck to honor him and other fallen veterans who have sacrificed their lives for our country. I have named the project "Bens58" after my son, PFC Benjamin Gandalf Young, 30 March 1988 – 27 May 2007.
Overview of Upgrades
Ben and I shared a deep love for our 58 Chevy Panel truck. I am making certain upgrades to improve the aesthetics, functionality, and performance of the vehicle, just as my son had envisioned when he was alive.
This includes adding turbos for more horsepower along with a few other goodies. In addition, the truck is being wrapped with vinyl wrapping containing pictures of Ben and other fallen veterans who have sacrificed their lives for the country.
Make a Donation
I am currently accepting donations via GoFundMe to support my project and turn my late son’s dreams into reality.
While I cannot provide you with a receipt for your donation, you can rest assured that whatever you contribute will be utilized in the best way possible. Even a small donation from your side can go a long way toward helping me achieve my goals.
