BP: Always there for vets: DAV continues to serve area veterans


November 12, 2019

BEMIDJI — Tucked away at the end of a road just outside Bemidji, a group of volunteers gathered Tuesday morning to pack up a semi-trailer with bags of donated items. In the 15-degree weather, a small crew tossed bags of clothing to one another, moving them down the line, and slowing filling up the vast space inside the truck. Inside a nearby building, other volunteers sorted through items, organizing other items into respective piles and bags.

A week later, they’d be right back in that same spot, supporting veterans through Chapter 7 of the Disabled Veterans of America. For that matter, they’ve becoming back year after year to raise funds for former service members in their community. Many in the group are disabled veterans themselves.
