Two veterans who rely on wheelchairs to get around received some new wheels they can drive.

Now they'll be able to roll onto specially equipped vans and drive themselves around.

The vehicles are outfitted by Better Life Mobility Centers in Riverside. The owner also uses a wheelchair.

The veterans say the vans will open up the world to them.

The owner of Better Life says veterans should contact the Veterans Administration for information about one-time grants for vehicle and mobility packages.
