SUV Donated To National Guard Single Parent Stolen

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) A Kansas Army National Guard member who is raising four sons alone says someone stole the vehicle an organization donated to help him.

Benjamin Lewis of Wichita says the SUV was taken from his home Sunday night or Monday morning. Making the situation worse _ his children's Christmas presents were hidden in the vehicle.

Lewis works for the Wichita school district while raising four boys under the age of 7 and serving in the Guard. The organization Cars 4 Heroes gave him a black and gold 1989 Suburban in September.

KAKE-TV reports Lewis has insurance so he eventually could get another vehicle. But he says he'd like to get the SUV back because it meant a lot to him to receive it for serving his country.
