Tribute of the Highest Order

0 b3a03George L. Nitti

For those in the towing industry, loyalties run deep to all first responders, including our servicemen and women, EMTs, firefighters and police.

According to Steve Fusaro, owner of K&S Towing and Recovery of Havertown, Pennsylvania, his vision was to create a tribute truck with their 2016 Peterbilt 567/Jerr-Dan JFB 50-ton body.

"I was a paid paramedic and volunteer fireman," Fusaro said, "and have family members who serve or have served in the military. I don't feel that law enforcement always gets the respect they deserve."

Fusaro shared his ideas with Killer Kreations of Philadelphia who then sketched out a design.

"I told Fred, the designer, what I wanted and he sketched it out. He did the work in two parts, first on the front and then on the back. It took two months to complete the project," Fusaro said.

The result was an original, eye-catching work of art that gives tribute of the highest order to all those who serve and protect.

The entire unit is a feast for the eyes. "Everybody blows their horns at it," Fusaro said.

On one side of the unit there is a police car, firetruck, ambulance and an emergency medical helicopter, all artistically depicted in front of a NYC landscape that includes the Twin Towers.

"A few weeks ago, a medical helicopter went down and crashed in the Delaware, killing the pilot. We had his name, Michael Murphy, put on the side door. Also we have a couple of yellow ribbons on the back that give tribute to our troops and 9/11."

On the other side of the unit is a tribute to our military, with two infantrymen representing the Navy and Army in combat. Both men are related to Fusaro, who had their names included in the design. Military helicopters, planes and boats are also shown in this tribute.

The most stunning image of all is on the hood, where a bald eagle sits atop the American flag, bringing this patriotic design together with other stars and stripes throughout.

Protecting and serving our country never looked so good.

Brag @ TIW!
