“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, Look for the helpers,'” Mr. Rogers once famously said. “You will always find people who are helping.”

Well, Hurricane Harvey is scary, but people have come out of the woodwork to help others.

Especially the dudes with mud bogger trucks. Like the guys in the today’s video.

A very heavy National Guard LMTV (Light Medium Tactical Vehicle) got stuck in deep flood water — but thankfully, a couple of lifted trucks were on hand.

 

 

The Escalade(!) drags the 2.5-ton LMTV out without much effort, much to the joy of the onlookers.

It’s both heartwarming and fundamentally American. I love it.

To all the rednecks — or should I say Red, White & Blue-necks — helping out in Houston, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
