Honoring Those Who Served

I get asked many times why did I build the American Spirit Mustang, and the answer does vary from time to time, but the real answer is that we need to honor the people who have fought for our freedom. Many of those people are part of my family, and I wanted to honor their efforts their sacrifices. I wanted the American Spirit Mustang to honor the people, the individuals and their lives and the impact their service and life had on others.

Pat / Woody Ecord – Scott Lewis – 07-29-2012

One of those people is Elwood “Woody” Ecord who served in the US Army in the Army Security Agency which became the National Security Department and most of his duties were and still are highly classified.

I never knew my natural grandparents all but my grandmother passed away before I was born. However, I was fortunate enough to have Pat and Woody Ecord in my life they became my grandparents in my heart and mind and played a huge role in my life. I love giving tours of the pictures on the car and when I come to Woody’s picture I tell people about my grandfather who served and I show them the picture on the car and every time I tell them the stories that he has shared with me over the years it reminds me how lucky I have been to have them in my life.

I share the story of how Pat and Woody came into my life and the experiences they have shared with me, it makes me reflect on how truly fortunate I have been to have been given the gift of having them in my life. I hope by having him on the American Spirit Mustang and sharing his service, honoring his life is in some way a small return and thanks for all he has provided to me.

Woody is pictured on the American Spirit Mustang to honor his service to the security of the United States of America.

The memories of those who served to build and protect the delicate
vision of the United States
Cannot be done with a roar but with a whisper
The memories of our veterans must be preserved and honored
Because there was and will be a time when the Eagle must fly again to
protect the people, the mission, and the vision of the United States.
It is the memories the dedication and traditions of those who served before that future protectors will build upon to insure that we survive.
