BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

What better way to say thank you to our nation's veterans than with a car. 

A local veteran in Baton Rouge was handed the keys to his newly refurbished vehicle Monday, and he was even able to start up the car with the crowd watching. 

The donation is a team effort with the United Collision Center, Enterprise and several other groups joining together to make it a reality. 

Similar donations happened across the country as more than 300 military families have received donations so far. 

The U.S. Department of Transportation said many veterans live in rural areas and may need to travel long distances.
