Welcoming a new Disabled American Veteran's van at the Department of Veteran's Affairs clinic in Brainerd Monday are Rich Greenwalt, (left) Ken Eggers, Bill Elliot, Bob Burns, Tim Brastrup, Chris Anderson, Kim Jensen, Ron Robbins, Pete Smude, Steve Rosenow and Dave Meyer.

The van program is a partnership between the St. Cloud VAMC and Minnesota DAV. Local chapter 22 was instrumental in donating and matching funds for the new van.

Logging up to 800 rides a year with the existing Crow Wing County vans, the new van will also be operated by volunteers. If you are interested in driving, please call 218-824-1058. (Brainerd Dispatch/Steve Kohls)

I was raised on a farm in western Minnesota where I participated in 4-H, high school sports, and everything that farm kids do for fun after chores. Graduated from Ridgewater Community College with an AA degree and my first taste of newspapering. I worked a summer on the Ortonville Independent as a reporter and photographer.
