The North Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs (NDDVA) gave away six new vans to Highly Rural Counties in North Dakota. The vans come from a Federal grant which the ND DVA was awarded last year. Eight vans were purchased in June from Harlow' Bus Sales in Bismarck. The six passenger vans are Dodge Caravans which are converted to wheel chair accessible vans with a ramp and chair tie downs so up to two wheel chair bound veterans can ride at the same time. Dennis Kubistka the CVSO from Steele County received his van on July 17th at the NDDVA - Fargo office.
