INDIANAPOLIS — Having reliable transportation is something many of us take for granted, but that's not the case for one local veteran who received a special gift on Tuesday.

Now, Hamilton has his own ride thanks to the organization,Cars 4 Heroes.

The nonprofit and Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett presented Hamilton with a free car at the Indiana Veterans Center.
