Veteran appreciation is in abundance today. A marine unable to accept a job promotion all because she didn't have a way to get around town. After a big surprise, she won't have the problem anymore.

Yvette Jones knows struggle. Serving her country as a marine and raising two children by herself.But when someone stole her car this summer, she tapped into that American strength continuing to fight the battle. Now, her community is the one serving her. Giving her keys to an American beauty, 2005 Cadillac DeVille.

Mom isn't the only one over-taken with emotion.

"This is exactly what we wanted. Seat warmers in the back!" said Lavette Jones, her daughter.

"It's just so unexpected when people who don't know you will pour into your life," said a sobbing Yvette.

A veteran taking the backseat for once and watching her community help her rise up. Pure gratitude both veteran and civilian.

Her gift was a part of Wheels of Success and State Farm agent Jim Cornwell. The car was donated by a State Farm client and the Wawa Foundation helped pay for repairs.
