Chief donates frame rack to Operation Comfort Automotivation Program

Operation Comfort is a non-profit, philanthropic organization focused on helping service members from all branches of the U.S. military who were wounded in Afghanistan and Iraq and are rehabilitating at Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) in San Antonio...

“We’re so appreciative that Chief understands the value of what we do and that they jumped in to help,” Roznowski says. “This was an incredibly generous donation. With the Chief rack, we’ll be able to teach the guys new skills that they may also be able to use when they return to civilian life.”

The soldiers have a long wishlist of additional tools and equipment the program could use. Operation Comfort does not have funding to buy equipment, so it relies on industry donations of tools, equipment and contacts for mentoring and training. 

Current needs include:

  • Chief accessory package and tool board
  • Frame measuring system
  • Brake lathe
  • Small lathe
  • Alignment rack and equipment
  • Complete socket sets
  • Soda blaster
  • Portable diesel-powered air compressor (125 cfm)
  • Bead roller
  • Spot welder
  • Metal brake
  • Sheet metal shear
  • English wheel
  • Shrinker/stretcher
  • Creepers
  • Wheel dollies
  • Hydraulic floor jacks
  • Air tool kit
