HOWELL VIETNAM VETERAN WALKING FOR OPERATION INJURED SOLDIER
A local veteran is looking to help other vets with a journey this month across Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Joe Ostervik, a Vietnam veteran from Howell, is walking over 200 miles to support Operation Injured Soldiers. He is calling the fundraiser JOIS Walkabout, which stands for Joe’s Operation Injured Soldier Walkabout. Ostervik says the trek, which will end at the Mackinac Bridge, should take about 20 days and cover 215 miles. He will be camping out most nights. Ostervik is gathering pledges and donations for his trip, all of it to benefit South Lyon-based Operation Injured Soldiers. The organization provides hunting, fishing, sporting events and camping trips, along with many other outdoor recreational activities, to disabled veterans to help with their physical and mental rehabilitation. Ostervik says he'd like to raise $20,000. Tax deductible checks can be sent to; Operation Injured Soldier, 22645 Pontiac Trail South Lyon, MI 48178. Specify the donation is for JOIS Walkabout.
