A Tucson car dealer is reaching out to help military men and
women deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Hailey Peck picked up her car at Jim Click Nissan.
She's glad to be back on the road again. Last month her
car quit running outside her church.

husband got deployed to Afghanistan 22 months ago.

Arizona National Guard Sergeant Aaron Peck is expected to

Peck tells Click, "It was such a blessing. I mean, thank
you guys so much."
Click tells her, "We sure appreciate what he's doing.
God bless him. And God bless your family."
Click dealerships have offered free routine maintenance
to deployed military since 2003.
