KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A local veteran received a very special present on Friday.
Sean Kirsch was given a Ford Explorer through the Cars 4 Heroes program.
He served 20 years in the military and has been deployed 18 times.
Organizers said one thing that impressed them about Kirsch was the fact that he doesn't want to be called a hero.
“I don't think anybody that spent time in the military ever considers themselves a hero, you did your job," Kirsch said.
The first trip he plans to take in his new SUV will be to visit his kids in Tennessee.
