The Richard I. Bong Veterans Historical Center is hosting a free trip for veterans to the Boundary Waters Canoe Area July 11-17.

This will be the fourth trip in the past five years and the sixth that the center has offered for veterans who are disabled or dealing with PTSD and other specified traumas.

Interested veterans can apply for the trip through the center’s website at https://bongcenter.org/boundary-waters-canoe-area/. Applicants wishing to be part of the first review of applications need to submit all materials by Friday, May 13. Space is limited.

Anyone interested in donating toward this program may contact John Gidley, at the center, 715-392-7151.
