Jefferson County Veterans Service Office gets new vehicle, custom wrap

FAIRBURY, NE — Jefferson County veterans are now traveling in style.

The County Commissioners provided a new, 2020 Ford Explorer to the Veterans Service Office recently, replacing the office’s old gas guzzler. Veterans Service Officer Don Cook says his office uses the vehicle to drive local veterans to visit VA doctors around the state.

“Our veterans are proud of it, they like it, it’s more comfortable for them and they enjoy the ride to Lincoln or Omaha,” Cook said.

Cook took another step to make the new SUV more appealing. He asked local businesses to finance a wrap for the vehicle. Now the Explorer sports a custom look with the Jefferson County courthouse displayed on the side.
