INCHELIUM – The Colville Tribal Veterans Program received a 2019 Ford Explorer as part of a grant through Wounded Warriors Family Services in early March.
The vehicle is being used to transport veterans to the Veterans Affairs office in Spokane and other functions the program is requested to attend.
Approximately 450 veterans are living on the Colville Reservation, according to officials. With the vehicle, the program now has transportation in all four districts of the reservation, Veterans Program manager Lucky Boyd said.
To show his program's appreciation, an enthusiastic Boyd says he's going to send the donor a tribal flag and a plaque.
