I cannot think Will enough over the past year for all of his efforts for myself and all others involved. Last July I thought my 90 was likely gone for good but glad to say it'll be on its way back home. I'm ecstatic. Can't wait to get on the trails once again

This is unreal. Will, you are top shelf, and what you've done is nothing short of selfless, and amazing.

My 10-year old daughter brought me this can of CocaCola today when I received word from the Court. I will do my best not to let it go to my head.



P.S.- Did I mention that the Defenders are being returned by the government without any costs whatsoever to the owners?

I was chatting with one of your clients earlier this afternoon about having his truck dropped off here for a bit of work after it having been locked up for a year, and got a nice little chuckle when he told me it'd be delivered on the government's dime. I never thought I'd see the day a Defender would be delivered to my shop by the feds!

Top notch stuff, Will. You really are an asset to the Defender community.

Thank you Will.
I am so grateful for everything you have sacrificed for us. You are truly a great American.
I honestly didn't expect to ever see my truck again. I almost gave up and purchased a replacement vehicle. Because you were so positive and optimistic every time I talked to you I decided to wait it out. Now after nearly a year, thanks to you, she is coming home.
