Vietnam Veterans of America fundraising to help local veterans


Cabela's is celebrating our hometown heroes Saturday.

As part of the day, the Vietnam Veterans of America were tabling outside the store collecting money.

All of the money they raise will go towards veterans in our area who are in need of help.

George Thomas also says they even help spouses of veterans who may have died, and are having financial problems.

He says it's important that the money stays here.

"They fought for us, fought for the country, fought for you. It's a simple as that. Without the veterans, we probably wouldn't be a country today," he said.
