Nursing Home Honors Vets

Posted: Updated:

A Minot Air Force Base volunteer group served up something in return to those who have served our country.

Friends of Veterans is a group of men and women currently enlisted in the air force who volunteer to hold events and activities for veterans living at Trinity nursing home. Today the volunteers sported red shirts as they grilled hamburgers and hotdog's for the residents. Currently, Trinity nursing home is home to 36 veterans; however, all residents and their families were invited to enjoy the barbeque. While Friends of Veterans is dedicated to providing their support to the veterans, the president of the organization says they also receive something in return.

(Andrew Magathan, President, Friends of Veterans)"Who understands military better than military? So, we're bridging the gap between the military of today and the military of yesterday. So some of these airmen might find a veteran as a mentor...I know I did."

Friends of Veterans is currently working to become a non-profit organization.
