Military ambulance restored for Motts
On Feb. 7, Motts Military Museum received a 1969 Vietnam Army Ambulance that was restored by Dan Boots Longenette (shown here driving the ambulance) and his associates. According to Motts Military Museum officials, the restoration took many hours to complete. Most of the materials were donated and the museum was not charged for the labor. “What a great job they did,” said Motts Military Museum Director Warren Motts. “With the help of volunteer Annie Gillen, we hooked up her trailer in the freezing cold which we needed to go pick up the ambulance. We loaded it, tied it down, and transported it back to the museum. We unloaded it and, with the help of volunteer Denny Badgerow, we moved vehicles around and placed the ambulance in safe storage.” It took five and a half hours to complete the mission. “Thanks to Boots for the restoration and the volunteers Annie and Denny for making this happen,” said Motts. “Watch for us in parades, we hope to have it with us and our vehicles soon.” Motts Military Museum is located at 5075 S. Hamilton Road in Groveport. For information visit or call 614-836-1500.
