Two local military families got quite the surprise for Veterans Day at the Keys to Progress event.

The Keys to Progress event was held in southeast Portland on Thursday.

Progressive Insurance sponsors the event, which gives refurbished cars to 100 veterans nationwide in honor of Veterans Day.

A Progressive spokesman spoke about the two local vets who received cars.

"There are two different stories, both deserving veterans. One is an older gentleman who has spent lots of time in the military and is a long time veteran, the other a younger veteran, deserving recipient none the less," said Michael MacPherson.

Since the start of the Keys to Progress event, Progressive has given away cars to more than 300 military families across the United States.
