A southwest Minnesota Disabled American Veterans chapter has a new van to transport veterans to their medical appointments.

The  Lyle C. Pearson Sr. Chapter #10, which serves Blue Earth, Waseca, Nicollet, LeSueur, Sibley, and Watonwan counties, paid for the $27,000 van in part through three years of annual fundraisers.

The area Disabled American Veterans chapter is also looking for volunteer drivers.  Anyone who is interested should contact Redwood County Veterans Service Officer Dustin Hunter.
