Community raises money, buys truck for wounded Marine

Posted: Updated:

DALTON, WHITFIELD COUNTY (WRCB) - A North Georgia marine received quite the Christmas gift from the community.

Monday afternoon, Brooker Ford donated a truck to Sergeant Joey Jones.

He was wounded in Afghanistan four and a half months ago and lost both his legs.

Sergeant Jones returned home over the weekend. The community raised the cash to get him his dream truck, which will eventually be modified for him.

"It's an awesome show of charity and I'll know to always pay it forward, that's for sure," says Sergeant Jones.

Sergeant Jones told us he's nothing special, just a guy who's had some misfortune.

We beg to differ, Sergeant, and we thank you for your sacrifice.
