Liberty Cart Dedication

My DAR Chapter purchased a "Liberty Cart" and donated it to a nearby VA hospital. Today was the dedication ceremony and I attended. That's me in the back seat in the middle. A Liberty Cart is one of those bigger golf carts that usually has 3 rows of seats. But the middle seat is removed and ramp is installed so that a wheelchair can go in the center. Many VA campuses are quite large, so the Liberty Cart allows for more movement in a quicker fashion, and also allows the families of the patients to ride with them. The cart is street legal so that the patients can be driven to a bus stop or grocery store or someplace out in town. It costs around $12,000, but my chapter is rich, so we voted to make this donation.
