Donors give new pre-owned car to Pueblo veteran


PUEBLO, Colo. — An Iraq war veteran who lives in Pueblo is getting a new pre-owned car.

Daniel Shaub is a U.S. Air Force veteran who served for 6.5 years before being honorably discharged in May 2014. He lives and works in Pueblo, and has been walking to and from work each day.

Thanks to several generous donations, Shaub was given a 1994 Mercury Cougar with only 67,000 miles. He was presented the gift Friday at the Mt. Carmel Center of Excellence.

“Someone saying that they care, they value what you’re doing, that’s huge,” Shaub said. “What’s bigger than that?”

The Mt. Carmel Center of Excellence has been providing support and services to Pikes Peak region military, veterans, and their families since before their doors opened in March.
