    Source Today Show but home Video by my Cell Phone

    SORRY THE AUDIO SUCKS SO JUST ENJOY THE VIDEO PART AT LEAST OR RAISE YOUR VOLUME BAR TEMPORARILY.

    Video #1 Cap - Basically Jay Leno took a US Soldier for a spin in the badass Red Hellcat in the first video.
    Video #2 Cap - Jay Leno gives the Hellcat to the US Soldier free as a gift for his service.
    The Soldier survived a bomb attack by a suicide bomber but his two friends and comrades died.

    There's more details to the whole story but it's on the Today show FB or website once they upload it.

    Sorry Vimeo only allows 1 HD video upload per week - oh well

    Video #1 Non HD


    Video #2 HD

    Awesome! The military and they're families go through so much, and get so little in return

    This was pretty awesome. Leno catches a lot of flack but I personally find him to be a very kind person. When I lived in L.A I went to one of his tapings and had a backstage pass. I was walking down the hall by myself and he was coming the other way (what do I say?), without me saying a word he came up and introduced himself and went on his way. I thought that was pretty cool.

    Leno is a good guy and this is just one more reason to like him even more

    Thanks for sharing this Hellcatdot!!!!!

    What I want to know is how Jay got a production vehicle with the power sunroof! :) At least it is going to a soldier who deserves it.
