MCTS Mechanic Jefferson Vang

MCTS Helps Salvation Army Provide Comfort


The following is a commendation for MCTS employee Jefferson Vang and the entire MCTS operation that was sent in by Pastor Alexis Twito of the Salvation Army.

As Coordinator for The Salvation Army Milwaukee Police Chaplaincy Program, I would like to commend MCTS on their support at the homicide scene in the early morning hours of Jan 8, 2017. At those frigid temperatures, providing a bus for our chaplains and victim family members to warm themselves was truly a blessing. My chaplains tell me that the driver (late night mechanic) Jefferson Vang was kind, courteous and respectful of the families and was a calming presence. Please, extend to him our gratitude.

For these families in the midst of extreme trauma and distress, to have a warm place to rest and wait while the investigation unfolds was one way to help to make a terrible situation perhaps just a bit easier, a tad smoother. And the warm space allowed our chaplains the comfort and ability to provide better care, as well; instead of worrying about the cold, they could focus on the families. So, thank you! Thank you to Mr. Vang, and thank you to MCTS for partnering with the police to provide such a service. It did not go unnoticed!
