Rick Mantei's Gesture of Support for Veteran Gary McCrackin

Rick Mantei paid a heartfelt visit to veteran Gary McCrackin, an Oregon native who served in the Army and endured a severe head injury after just 11 months of service. Living in a veterans home and subsisting on a meager income of under $1,000 monthly, Gary has faced a series of hardships including being electrocuted, enduring divorces, and battling cancer. Reliant on support from the VA and Social Security, Rick, aiming to secure Gary 100% disability for his injury, presented him with thoughtful gifts—a model plane, a Bible, and a US flag, illustrating compassion and solidarity with Gary’s struggles and his service to the nation.
