While the Logan County Veterans to D.C. embarks on the fifth annual trip to the nation’s capital in early October, many preparations are currently under way, and additional volunteers are needed to help with a variety of tasks during the upcoming months.
Organizer Scott Stewart said a number of dedicated individuals have served with the group over the years, but life circumstances routinely can come up, creating the need for additional people to assist with the project.
The organization provides veterans of World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War to Washington, D.C., with an all-expenses paid trip to see their memorials for the first time.
Individuals who would be willing to assist with the Veterans to D.C. should call Stewart at 407-6766. He said fundraisers will be approaching in the upcoming months, along with other opportunities to serve.
Veterans to D.C. “is a community project, and whether you hold up a flag while the group departs, or help to sell raffle tickets, you’re a valuable volunteer to make this happen,” he said.
“We appreciate those individuals and groups who have stepped up to simply say, ‘What can I do to help?’ We will find a job for them.”
