Cars 4 Heroes, a not-for-profit organization that provides free basic transportation to disadvantaged individuals and veterans, provided Master Sgt. Jeffery Norling with a 2004 Suzuki sedan after his family lost their house and two of their three vehicles in the tornado that struck Reading, Kansas, on May 21.

"It's very humbling," said Norling about his selection to receive a donated car. "I didn't think it applied to me; I never thought I was more deserving than anyone else. The outpouring of support from friends, family and neighbors has been tremendous," he continued.

Terry Franz, founder of Cars 4 Heroes, presented Norling with the vehicle during a ceremony on June 8. Cars 4 Heroes is currently focusing on helping veterans replace vehicles destroyed in the Joplin tornado.
