Lusby, MD --  Local veteran Anita James is the happy owner of a 2015 Honda Accord, thanks to a program dedicated to assisting vets in medical trouble. Hill is a 32-year-old Military Police combat veteran who worked as a Patrol Officer and RTO, (Radio Transmitter Officer) until being honorably discharged with a medical retirement due to injuries sustained during combat.

The National Foundation of Integrative Medicine (NFIM) Veterans Division partnered with GEICO, and he National Auto Body Council’s Recycled Rides program to present James with the vehicle at Service King in Lusby.

Recycled Rides is a program that provides restored vehicles to individuals and families in need all over the country. Recycled Rides members work with non-profits to repair vehicles for donation.

James was nominated to receive the vehicle through the Veterans Division of NFIM, a nonprofit committed to assisting vets in medical trouble. She needed the vehicle because she didn't have a working car to get to and from work in. Hill hopes to use the vehicle to pursue her dreams of being a K-9 officer and a service dog trainer for other veterans.

Other businesses that contributed to getting the car on the road for James were  Rockville Auto Tag and Title, Southern Maryland Towing, Detailing Dynamics, All Star Auto Lights and D & S Glass.
