Peace lives in the most curious places. A group of military veterans and Border States volunteers recently discovered it in a fishing boat.
Band of Brothers Outdoors, a nonprofit that helps military veterans enjoy outdoor experiences and favorite pastimes through recreational therapy, held its second annual Walleye Tour in early June. The event took place at Doc’s Harbor, a lodging site on the north shore of Mille Lacs Lake in Aitkin, MN.
Volunteers from Border States’ Albertville, MN, branch were among the volunteers who provided food and fellowship for approximately 40 veterans.
“We wanted to give back to those who have served our country and sacrificed for us,” says Branch Manager Daniel Essig. “We just enjoy being part of providing a fun day for these vets.”
