Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Help is on the way for some veterans around the valley from the Disabled American Veterans, Nevada Chapters.

They're donating two vehicles to the VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System.

The gift will help make sure local veterans have transportation.

In the past year, VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System volunteers have transported nearly 10,000 veterans to VA appointments, and traveled more than 300,000 miles.

The VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System will receive the new vehicles on Thursday.
