Retired Army veteran gets special surprise

Posted: Updated:
BOSTON (WHDH) - A retired U.S. Army veteran from Kansas got a special surprise.

Justin Krutsinger received a brand new car, from the "Cars for Heroes" organization.

He served eight years in the Army and did three tours in Afghanistan.

Earlier this year, Krutsinger was honorably discharged because he suffers from a traumatic brain injury.

"I can't believe this even happened," said Krutsinger. "I feel like there's more deserving people out there, but I thank you from the bottom of my heart and my family thanks you, too."

Krutsinger has been driving a van that was on the verge of breaking down.
