MILWAUKEE (WITI) — FOX6 News and Toyota teamed up to give away a brand new Toyota Rav 4 to a lucky veteran.

The contest was narrowed down to six finalists.

Dirk Brandt won the Toyota live on FOX6’s Weekend WakeUp News on Sunday, March 3rd.

Brandt is serving his 22nd year in the Army National Guard. He says he doesn’t plan on keeping the car — but says he will donate it to another veteran who needs it more than him.

“It really is a blessing.  It just raises awareness on veteran’s issues and stuff like that. It really means a lot to me,” Brandt said.

Brandt is all about paying it forward. He volunteers at a recovery center and helps at the Ronald McDonald House in his spare time.
