There's an opportunity to help those who've defended our freedoms.

One campaign is looking for volunteers to "Drive-a-Hero."

The Oklahoma DAV and Eastern Oklahoma VA system are coming together to give free rides to our veterans to and from medical appointments.

They're holding training sessions on June 25 at the Hard Rock Hotel Casino Tulsa.

An organizer says these free rides are a blessing.

"Many of them don't have transportation, they can't get the medical care that they need and deserve, and that's what we're here to provide," said Hospital Service Coordinator for DAV Transportation's Misty Summers.

Volunteers don’t have to be veterans to participate in the program.
