    Sure wish that would have won one of those cars, being that my husband is a 20 year veteran of the Air Force and is now and have been a cancr patient for almost nine years and now doing dialysis. How was the people picked that recieved the first five of the ten cars. We all have issues soe worse than others. Thanks

      A Charlie Owens quit crying like a little baby! Nobody cares about your problems and just because your husband is a veteran doesn’t mean you deserve special treatment of any kind! So stop pouting you snob!!!

      Charlie Owens……I believe that you are being very selfish and bitter……they draws are random and not picked on your needs…….Instead of being so bitter you should be happy for the people and Veteran that did win a new vehicle. I to have a husband that has cancer, was on Dyalisis for 6 years, had a kidney transplant and now has to go back on Dyalisis, so you are not the only one that has problems. Maybe if you looked on the bright side of things, you would be a much happier and less bitter individual.
