Former president George W. Bush has been one of the most vocal advocates for the military since he left office, and he recently launched another initiative aimed at supporting their families. Bush plans on auctioning off a pickup truck he used around his famous Texas ranch and using the money to assist the loved ones of servicemen and women, reports The Associated Press.

The truck, a Ford F-150 King Ranch 4-by-4 SuperCrew, is set to go on the block on January 19, and all of the proceeds will be donated to the Fisher House Foundation, which is dedicated to helping troops and their families find homes. The ride, which also includes Bush's signature, has a unique place in United States history.

"Driven by a president and now benefiting veterans, this truck is an exceptional piece of Americana that would make any collector proud," Steve Davis, president of Barrett-Jackson, the auction company selling the truck, said in a statement.

The auction is certainly not the first time Bush has made an effort to support servicemembers. Earlier this year, he hosted the Warrior Open, a two-day golf tournament that welcomed 22 soldiers who were wounded in Iraq or Afghanistan.
