UTICA- Disabled American Veterans, an organization who helps veterans transition from service to civilian life, came to Utica to recruit people to become drivers for their Drive a Veteran program.

Close to a dozen people showed up at the Veterans Outreach Center to learn more about the program. These volunteers would provide medical transport to veterans who need to get to and from appointments. 

Those with the organization said an act like this means a lot to the veterans. " I think it's great when you get somebody that isn't a veteran and wants to help out a veteran. That's special to my heart," said head recruiter for DAV, William Gleason.
