Today is an especially important day to remember our veterans.. They fought for our freedom, and this morning a few heroes got their freedom back with the gift of a car.
The organization making this possible is Cars4Heroes. The non-profit provides about 300 cars to veterans each year.
Today, three local vets received new rides, including Benjamin Lewis.
Lewis is currently serving in the National Guard, but he is also a single father of four boys, all under the age of seven.
In July, he was rear-ended, which totaled his car and left him without transportation.
"Since that car accident, it's been a lot of struggle," Lewis said. "Trying to get kids to school, trying to get kids enrolled in school, trying to get to work."
Today, that struggle ended. Duane and Arlita Buller donated their '89 Suburban to Cars4Heroes. It's a vehicle with plenty of room for this hero's large family.
