Serving as a consultant in war-torn Iraq, Retired U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Tom Sands had quite a surprise waiting for him when he got back home. While Sands was in Iraq serving as a private contractor this spring, his wife and daughters Nicole, 9, and Brooke, 13, created a video and secretly submitted it to Dixie Chopper for a YouTube contest. The Sands video creation was an overwhelming winner in the “Who Loves Their Dixie Chopper” contest. And on Aug. 11, Dixie Chopper Marketing Manager Kraig Richmond and Communications and Public Relations Director Eric Bernsee flew to Texas to surprise Lt. Col. Sands with his prize -- a new 2010 Dixie Chopper Magnum mower. They were joined by Dixie Chopper Territory Manager Lance Wheeler and Mike Shanks of Mike’s Motor Toys in Rockwall, the local Dixie Chopper dealer.
