"HEROES TRUCK"

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with USA Realty,Inc. KY44798

I HAD THE PRIVILAGE OF MEETING DALE AND CONNIE ISON FROM HILLSBORO, OHIO THE PROUD OWNERS OF THE "HEROES TRUCK"

DALE CONNIE ISON

 

I AM NOT A BIG TRUCK FAN, BUT I  WANTED TO SEE THIS TRUCK BECAUSE IT IS DESIGNED TO HONOR OUR TROOPS, PAST AND PRESSENT. YOU SEE OUR MEN AND WOMEN IN THE ARMED FORCES HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART. MY SON HAS SERVED 13 MONTHS IN IRAQ AND IS DUE TO SERVE ANOTHER TERM. SO I HEADED TO K-MART PARKING LOT THIS AFTERNOON WHERE "CRUISIN ON MAIN" WAS FEATURING "HEROES TRUCK".

DALE AND CONNIE WERE SO SWEET AND I HAD A VERY NICE CONVERSATION WITH CONNIE AND I TOLD HER HOW MUCH I APPREICATE WHAT THEY HAVE DONE TO HONOR OUR TROOPS, OF COURSE I HAD TO TELL HER ABOUT MY SON AND SHE SAID "TELL YOUR SON WE ARE PROUD OF HIM"

THE TRUCK IS A 1999 CHEVROLET WITH A CADILLAC CIIP. THE COST WAS APPROXIMATELY $650,000 TAKING 5 YEARS TO COMPLETE. TIME SPENT WAS APPROXIMATELY 50,0000 HOURS AND SOME 1200 AIRBRUSH HOURS DONE BY ARTIST, MICKY HARRIS. THE SCENES ARE SO LIFE LIKE THAT YOU HAVE TO SEE IT FOR YOURSELF. THE 9-11 SCENES TOUCH MY HEART THE MOST AND THE VIETNAM MEMORIAL, THE TWIN TOWERS WERE JUST AWSOME!! IT HAS 11 TELEVISION SCREENS WITH VIDEO CLIPS OF 9-11 FIREMEN AND VARIOUS SCENES.

CONNIE TOLD ME THEY HAD BEEN IN 30 SOME STATES SO IF YOU ARE WHERE YOU HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THE "HEROES TRUCK" YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. HOPE YOU ENJOY THE PICTURE EVEN THO THEY DO NOT COME CLOSE TO SHOWING THE TALENT DISPLAYED.

Barbara, Thanks for sharing the pictures.  Make sure you tell your son we are so proud of him and thank you for his service.  I am an army mom too - going on 12 months of a 15 month deployment.

May God bless our troops.

Tammie, Thanks for your comment, I could not find a schudule for "HEROES TRUCK" . I did buy Dale Ison's Book "Follow Your Dreams"  and his address is Dale Ison 3219 St. Rt.41 Hillsboro, Ohio 45133  He Loves fan mail Maybe you could write him and get a schudule from him. I was told the Car Show where I saw him had contracted him to come to our town. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. Thanks again Barbara London, Ky

Barbara yu took some wonderful pictures and you are right you have to see the Heros truck to really get the feel. I seen it tonight and I had tears just seeing the memorial for all the Heros in the great country. I even bought one of the shirts and donate because once you see the wonderful way that Dale has honored all the brave men and women in history just takes your breathe away. I am now going to order his book. Again Thank you so much for the pictures because even though I also took pictures I know yours are much better
