Walter Maciel is a man of action.
When he perceives a problem, the 78-year-old Tewksbury resident and Korean War veteran doesn't waste time complaining, he does something about it. Such was the case 18 months ago when he started a Neighborhood Watch group.
And such was case when Maciel came to the conclusion that America had lost its way and needed to get back on the right track. Maciel says the problem has nothing to do with politics or international diplomacy. Rather, he says, it's a problem of the heart and the spirit.
And with that, Maciel re-tooled his 1936 Chevy pickup truck to carry a message wherever he drove -- "Bring America Back To Jesus."
Maciel's truck was on display at the recent Tewksbury Memorial Day Parade and captured a good deal of attention.
Maciel explains his message and the reason he feels it's critical to the future of the country in the attached YouTube video.
