LUBBOCK, Texas -

A West Texas veteran one of 100 to receive keys to a new car, nationwide.

Mark Flores is a Marine from Canyon, spending eight years in the Corps. He attends West Texas A&M and volunteers with the Canyon Fire Department.

"It's awesome to think that... for a year and a half, you've been either walking or riding a bike to help others... walking to the fire station to help others, for you just to go above and beyond so you can help other individuals," Jason Hayes, Progressive Insurance, said.

It's part of Progressive's Keys to Progress program, which also donates vehicles to several veterans support organizations across the country.

Progressive reports about two in five veterans live in rural areas where transportation options are limited, making it difficult to get to medical care or a job.
