2013 NHRA: Beckman, MTS Team To Host Southern California's Jerral Hancock At Pomona

Rodger and Karen Comstock of Mail Terminal Services have the perfect way to end their 2013 season that featured the MTS Mail for Wounded Warriors program through their sponsorship of the NHRA Funny Car driven by Jack Beckman of Norco, Calif.

On Saturday, they will host Jerral Steel Hancock of Lancaster, Calif., who will be the team's VIP Hero of the Day during the NHRA Auto Club Nationals at the Mello Drag Racing Series event at Pomona, Calif.

Hancock was serving in the U.S. Army's 1st Cavalry Division when the M-1A Abrams tank he was driving in 2007 on the streets of Baghdad, Iraq, was hit by an explosive device that destroyed the tank. Hancock, a single-father of two young children, lost his left arm, sustained major burns and is paralyzed below his shoulders.

And it happened on Memorial Day, which also was his 21st birthday. With assistance from his mother, Stacie Tscherny, Hancock, 27, is raising his children in Lancaster.

The Comstocks own Mail Terminal Services and are longtime supporters of Beckman, who won the 2012 NHRA Funny Car world championship driving for Don Schumacher Racing.

Throughout this season, the Comstocks have provided free postcards for NHRA fans at events throughout the country so they can write a message to a Wounded Warrior. The Comstocks collect the cards and send them to local veteran hospitals and also donate $1 for each completed card to Wounded Warriors.

The Comstocks spearheaded a "Mail from Home" campaign from 2007 to 2010 with Beckman that generated nearly 1 million postcards that were delivered to American forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.
