Lincoln Mason decided to combine two things dear to his heart with his latest endeavor.
First, a love for vintage automobiles. The ones that could tell quite a story if they could only talk.
Second, was his patriotic spirit. Trying to help some veterans in need of a lift.
Lincoln has taken a 1953 Army Jeep, an M37 weapons transport carrier, and is in the process of getting it restored and back in tip-top shape. The goal is to have the Jeep ready to transport some of the Humboldt/Dakota American Legion and VFW Honor Guard in the annual 4th of July parade next week.
