With its incredible level of detail, numerous awards have been achieved including many ISCA Best of Show, DuPont Top Gun Award and multiple magazine features. This truck is a tribute to the American Heroes. It was started prior to September 11th, with a Patriotic defined concept, but after the unforgettable day, the truck’s message was changed to show the personified American heroism throughout our history. Mickey Harris’ murals not only embrace our military, but also firefighters, police, nurses, politicians, astronauts, and any other U.S. citizen that has shown courage and self-sacrifice. This is a tribute to all of our past, present and future American Heroes.
