American Veterans First (AVF) recently donated an electric wheelchair to Escalon resident, veteran Daryl Brown. AVF President John Hinkel took a moment to pose for a photo op with Brown, a 101st Airborne Division Vietnam veteran, when the chair was delivered earlier this month. Brown said he was delighted to receive the chair and extremely appreciative to have mobility once again.
