RIO RANCHO, N.M. (KRQE) – A veteran who is new to New Mexico got a big gift from a local organization.
Disabled veteran Leigh Pavone served in the Army for four years. While in Iraq, Pavone suffered multiple setbacks including broken bones and PTSD.
He recently moved his family to Rio Rancho and they were in desperate need of a vehicle.
That’s when “Heroes Walk among Us” stepped in and gave him a car.
“At the time we were borrowing a friend’s car and it wasn’t working out very well. But we were making due. Now things will be a lot easier for us I think,” said Pavone.
This is the third vehicle this year the organization has given to vets in need.
