The Santa Maria fire department gifted a World War II and Korean War veteran with a new special jacket yesterday.

The department tweeted today that, while responding to an EMS call last month, firefighters cut a special jacket off the veteran. The new jacket was a way to honor the veteran’s service.

The gift was a collaborative effort with Honor Flight, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing veterans with honor and closure.
