SACRAMENTO, Calif. — An Army veteran was honored Wednesday for the sacrifices he made while he was deployed in Iraq. Former U.S. Army Spc. Andrew Martinez, of Sacramento, was given a new set of wheels through the Military Warriors Support Foundation. The foundation teamed up with Wells Fargo and Kuni Chevrolet-Cadillac to sponsor the program. “The ability to provide them with a payment-free vehicle is really something that will help them transition back into normal life,” said Jason Wright, with Wells Fargo Auto. Martinez was awarded a new 2019 Chevrolet Traverse. “It’s gonna help do more activities,” Martinez said. “I have a lot of dogs. So, we’ll be able to go out and enjoy the outdoors with them.” Martinez joined the military in 2007 and was deployed to Iraq for more than a year. He was later honorably discharged from the Army. While deployed, Martinez was injured while supporting combat operations. He received a Purple Heart for his actions. He was the recipient of the Combat Action Badge, the Army Commendation Medal and other awards. Now, Martinez works with individuals facing mental health challenges.
