Here comes WW II and Korean War veteran Ken Nather driving his 1942 U.S. Army Jeep, which has a 30 Caliber Machine Gun and a Rocket Launcher.
Riding with him is Capt. Rich Buckley. Rich was a Marine Jet Fighter pilot. He flew 122 missions in F4B Phantoms in Viet Nam. He's a long-time Livermore resident and now owns Rich Buckley Realty.
