West Coast Choppers Jesse James donated the Iraq Confidential Humvee which he had built with the troops to the troops bu giving it to Soldiers’ Angels. This custom Humvee is a very historic car. It used to be an actual military vehicle and has served in army in Iraq.
Back in 2006 James had a special visit with the 181st Transportation Battalion in Iraq where he rebuilt and restored the combat-damaged Humvee and then customized it in a very terrible way to be honest! That doesn’t matter of course, what matters is the history of this special car. The Humvee’s rebuild, conducted by James and the soldiers, was documented on a video titled Iraq Confidential and later broadcast on the Military channel.
Now it can benefit the troops again as James hand it over to Soldiers’ Angels along with a semi-truck full of new copies of Garage magazine and West Coast Choppers window stickers, which will be included in care packages for deployed troops.
Jesse James has been having some personal problems recently, if you know what I’m talking about , to carry on business so he closed the doors of the Garage and West Coast Choppers and is now trying to get rid of the stuff they made over the years!
“Going to Iraq to do that build with the troops, being able to shake their hands and to tell them ‘thank you,’ was one of the most rewarding and humbling experiences in my life,” James says. “With all of their different programs providing support to the troops, veterans and their families, donating the Humvee to Soldiers’ Angels brings it full circle, allowing it to continue to benefit those guys and gals and let them know how much I appreciate their service.”
Donors to Soldiers’ Angels can also receive one copy of the magazine and sticker set as a gift with each online $10 donation at www.soldiersangels.org when they enter “JJ” in the comments line.
