A philanthropic association of motorcycle clubs in Shreveport, Veterans for Veterans, donated a new 12-passenger van Thursday to the Disabled American Veterans charity or DAV of north Louisiana.

The van will used to drive veterans from the Longview VA community clinic to the Overton Brooks VA Medical Center in Shreveport.

It was donated at a ceremony at Chevyland car dealership in Shreveport where the van was purchased.

More than 200 people with military ties turned out for a veterans job and resource fair held at the Bossier Civic Center. Organizers say veterans bring a can-do attitude to the workplace.
