Marine Who Stole A Truck To Save Las Vegas Victims Gets Amazing Reward

Taylor Winston’s Marine Corps training came in handy when gunfire rained down on a country musical festival in Las Vegas on Oct. 1. The former Marine did what he had to do to help save lives that night—which happened to involve stealing a truck.

Taking a vehicle that happened to have the keys in it allowed Winston to help get over 30 injured people to the hospital much faster than the first responders. But not to worry — the 29-year-old returned the truck to its rightful owner as soon as he was finished saving lives.

Now, to thank Taylor Winston for his efforts, a car dealership called B5 Motors gifted him with a brand-new truck of his own. The dealership greatly respected his ability to think clearly and help others in an emergency.

“Most of us would have ran and never came back,” Shane Beus, owner of B5 Motors of Arizona told CNN. “His military training allowed him to think in a split second what to do.”

They were first able to make contact with Winston after putting out a plea on social media using the hashtag “#HelpB5MotorsFindTaylorWinston.”

After only a few hours, the dealership had made contact with him. And just days later, the dealership posted a video of Winston receiving his brand new Ford F-150.

After receiving the keys, he admitted, “I don’t even know how to accept a gift of this caliber,” but he’s hoping to use it to give back in any way that he can.

“Helping out at a lot of country festivals and making dance floors—if anyone knows me, that’s kind of what I do, and this is going to help a lot,” he said.

Now that Winston has been given a truck, he plans to sell his previous vehicle and donate the proceeds to continue to help victims from the Las Vegas shooting. He seems truly humbled by the gift, but admits that it’s hard to think of himself as a hero.

“There’s so many others that haven been given as much credit as I [have],” he says in the Facebook video. “It’s hard to accept ‘hero’ when there’s just everyone doing what they should do. It’s great to see so many people step up.”

And many people do consider him a hero.


And folks were delighted to hear that he’d been rewarded for his bravery.

“So awesome! Love when good things happen to good people,” one person wrote on Twitter.



You Can Now Officially Get Married In Taco Bell

If you’ve ever been to a Taco Bell and thought to yourself, “Wow. I love this place so much, I wish I could get married here,” you’re in luck. Because now you officially can.

You’ve probably heard of Taco Bell weddings and engagements in the past, but now it’s official. The fast-food chain announced this week that starting summer 2017, you can tie the knot in a Taco Bell wedding held at the chain’s flagship restaurant on the Las Vegas strip.

While it might not be the most traditional of weddings, it certainly comes with some flair. Your Taco Bell wedding can accommodate up to 15 guests, and happy couples will be able to order a special “Wedding Package” from the menu that includes a number of themed items.

Your Wedding Package will come with a Taco Bell garter and bow tie, a bouquet made of sauce packets, “Just Married” shirts and champagne flutes emblazoned with the Taco Bell logo.

If all of this swag isn’t enough for you, just wait until you hear about the food. Couples who spring for the wedding package will also get a 12-Pack of tacos and a Cinnabon Delights Wedding Cake.

While most weddings are a significant expenditure, the Taco Bell wedding is actually very reasonably priced. Including the ceremony and an officiant, the entire wedding package will only cost about $600.

In a recent press release, Taco Bell announced that all the wedding coordinations and services are provided thanks to a partnership between the fast-food chain and Flora Pop, a company that focuses on pop-up weddings and elopements.

If you just can’t wait to get hitched at TB, don’t worry. The company announced a special giveaway sweepstakes on Valentine’s Day that couples can enter called the Love and Tacos Contest.

If you and your partner win, you’ll snag an all-expense-paid trip to Vegas and be the very first couple to get hitched at the “Cantina” flagship restaurant. Fans can cast votes for their favorite couples and there’s an added bonus—if you’re one of the voters, you’ll be automatically entered into the Happily Ever Crashers Sweepstakes.

If you win this one, you’ll automatically get to be on the couple’s guest list. The contest closes on February 26, and the happy winning couple (and wedding crashers!) will be announced on March 16.

So, does this sound like your dream wedding? Honestly, if there are tacos involved, I’m there.
