Two local veterans surprised with new cars
OMAHA, Neb. —
Two Omaha veterans were surprised when they got new cars Thursday morning.
The Progressive Insurance Program Keys to Progress donates cars to military veterans.
More than 100 vets from around the country will get a car.
The veterans are chosen according to their needs and distance they have to travel to get to their jobs or a hospital.
For these vets, getting this car with winter just around the corner is a big stress relief.
"It’s a sense of peace and sense of wellbeing knowing that everything is taken care of," said Army Veteran Rachel Keller, who received a car.
This is the fifth year for the Keys to Progress program.
