The Nagles spoke of how they were in “complete disbelief” at receiving the vehicle.

“This is a huge help for us,” they said.

The community effort to make this donation happen was emphasized throughout the event.

“It is a privilege to be part of a company and a local industry that is willing to invest time and dollars to demonstrate our appreciation to those in our military who give so much to represent and protect us,” said LaMettry’s President of Operations Darrell Amberson.

LaMettry-CarColonel Johanna Clyborne of the Minnesota Army National Guard thanked “the community as a whole that has stepped forward, working together to fill a need.”

Also speaking at the event was Inver Grove Heights Mayor George Tourville. He spoke of the importance of the National Guard to Minnesota and the country, as well as that “it takes more than just one company to make these events happen.”
