Tuesday is Military Appreciation Day at the Minnesota State Fair.

One veteran was given a special gift for his service and sacrifice.

Military Warriors Support Foundation, Apple Autos, and Wells Fargo donated a new Ford Escape to Spc. Dan Cahill.

The U.S. Army veteran, who grew up in Janesville, Minnesota, was awarded two Purple Hearts after surviving two IED attacks while fighting in Afghanistan.

“I didn’t think I’d ever get it, but I got it, so it’s amazing,” Cahill said. “I couldn’t believe it.”

Cahill says the new car comes at a great time because his old one was starting to break down.
