‘For veterans to enjoy North Dakota’

Eloise Ogden/MDN Don Larson, right, president of the Dakota Territory Air Museum board of directors in Minot, presents a check for $2,130 to Daniel Haff, Minot, associate for North Dakota for The Foundation of Exceptional Warriors (F.E.W.) on Thursday at the air museum. The air museum and F.E.W. divided the net profits of Ale from Above, an event held during the 75th anniversary of D-Day at the air museum on June 6. F.E.W.’s money will be used “for veterans to enjoy North Dakota,” Haff said. F.E.W. is a national organization based in Bixby, Okla., that launched in 2012. Its mission is to provide cost-free adventures (i.e. fishing, hunting, sky diving, family outings, etc.) for warriors who were wounded in combat, decorated for valor, special operations forces and prisoners of war – any era, any conflict, according to its website. Last week, Haff said in the local area four veterans were taken on a canoe trip on the Missouri River.
