Operation Texas Strong visited Retired MSgt Prevett to provide a new home. An RV was donated that day and was equipped with a stove, TV, and bed, a report said.
Peter Prevett, Jr., a Medina County veteran, served for 20 years in the US Air Force. Most of his time overseas was spent in communications intelligence. After retiring with the rank of Master Sergeant E-7, MSgt Prevett made Medina County his home several years ago, stated the report.
According to the report, after a natural disaster on April 28 destroyed his house, the 72-year-old veteran had moved into a tent after the Red Cross/ACCOG funds for a temporary hotel ran dry.
Since January, founded the charity. This RV is the 53rd home Bobby and Peggy Crutsinger and their dedicated team have given since the charity’s foundation in January this year, the report said.
They took all day off to drive the 12-hour round trip from Bracketville to pick up the RV and deliver it to Prevett.
In the report, Prevett stated that he “felt safer in a tent than he would in the trailer. However, a tent can be very difficult to live in. I used to sleep in the tent all the time at first, but the heat and heavy rains have made it difficult ….. They say that desperate times call for desperate measures. It’s all part of life. It’s okay to accept it and try our best.”
John Quigley of Fort Clark, a 10-year Army veteran, donated the amazing used RV to Operation Texas Strong. He also served many years in military service. The old camper will now be Prevett’s home, the report stated.
MSgt. Prevett, Ret. said that it was a very needed gift and made possible by so many people. “God bless everyone who made it possible, and I thank God for placing these people in my path, all of them.”
Prevett stated that he was proud and blessed to have been able to serve the country and its people.
” I would like to express my gratitude for all you do. My sincere appreciation goes out to you from the bottom of my heart,” he said as the report concluded.
