Cars 4 Vets steps up to help disabled veterans in metro Detroit

Our heroes don’t always leave the armed forces with the support they deserve, and that’s why one nonprofit has made it their mission to help disabled veterans get around metro Detroit.

Master Sergeant Mark Rebo is a 24-year veteran who started the organization.

“I came up with this idea about a year and a half ago to fix up and give a car to a veteran in need, a local veteran who needed a vehicle,” he said. “That’s since grown into a 501c3 and in 16 months I’ve given away 31 cars.”

His latest car was given away at the UAW Region One Car Show in Warren over the weekend.

His goal was to select veterans who could actually use a car to get to medical appointments.

“I appreciate Mark and his organization. I get around on public transport and it’s just me,” said the recipient.

Rebeaud wakes up early to fix the cars of his fellow veterans before going to his regular job.
