My David with one of the Orion trucks
I got to talk quite a while with Cody. He said they rely heavily on donations of equipment- one of the trucks was an old military vehicle that came in done up in camoflage, and the Orion volunteers had to do their own paintjob. Cody had done the inside of the truck and was showing off his finished work to me- he did a job to be proud of! One of the trucks was a former Forestry vehicle...Cody is two years older than my son, and I had babysat him years ago when we used to live in the area. My son is a volunteer firefighter also, in another part of Oklahoma, so I have a special place in my heart for all these special men.
