It’s a memorable Veteran’s Day for a group of local veterans that were finalists in the “All American Salute to our Veteran’s” car give away.

The contest hosted by Bill Walsh Toyota of Ottawa, AM 1220 WLPO, 99.3 WAJK, 96.5 the Wolf, and the Newstribune sent U.S. Navy veteran Frank Hrovat home with a new 2011 Toyota Camry.

Hrovat, of La Salle, was randomly chosen as the winner Thursday evening during a ceremony at Jeremiah Joe Coffee in Ottawa.  About 300 entries were submitted.  That pool was narrowed down to 10 before the winner was chosen.  Veterans had to be from La Salle, Bureau or Putnam Counties.

Other finalists will receive a U.S. flag that had been flown over the nation’s capital.

Charlie Downey of Magnolia submitted Hrovat’s name.  For that he’ll receive a trip to Washington D.C.
