U.S. Army veteran new car

A U.S. Army veteran will receive some much needed help for his daily commutes.

Todd Marriner walks and takes multiple buses to work and to his routine medical appointments at the VA Hospital.


What would be a 10 minute drive usually takes three hours round trip. As a thank you for his service, GEICO and Caliber Collision will be honoring Marriner with a newly-refurbished 2014 Nissan Sentra.


It's part of the National Auto body Council's Recycled Rides program. Marriner is the second Tucson veteran in recent week to be awarded a vehicle, part of the nationwide Recycled Rides program.


Veteran Juan Morales received a 2014 Ford Fusion a few weeks prior.
