Guadalupe Payne Receives a Ford Escape

SSgt Guadalupe Payne joined the Oklahoma Air National Guard in 1983 and separated in 1992 after nine years of service as an Information Specialist in the Air Force. She and her husband currently reside in Oklahoma.

Sadly, Guadalupe’s husband has been ill for a long while. Medical bills began to pile up and the couple fell upon tough times financially. They lost their house, and they lost their car. Her husband is now in a nursing home, and she has not had a car since July of 2016.

Thanks to Soldier’s Wish and Subway, we were able to present this deserving soldier with a car, so that she can visit her husband and go to work. Guadalupe was nominated for a wish by her mother and was presented the wish at the annual Bixby BBQ Festival in Bixby, Oklahoma on the Soldier’s Wish stage.

We thank this brave soldier for her sacrifice.
