Rapoport was in the Marine Corps from 2000 to 2004. He spent a lot of time in Kuwait and Iraq driving convoys.

He said he's grateful for the new ride.

"I had a friend drive me here and I said 'I won't need a ride home,'" Rapoport said, laughing.

The vehicle was donated by State Farm Insurance and repaired by Heppner's Auto Body in Woodbury.
