Department President’s Project – The Department President Kathy Karnowski has two very worthy projects this year for those of you wishing to help veterans. DIVIDE CAMP, Joseph, Oregon. This camp is a week-long experience for Post 9-11 combat veterans who bond with other veterans; unplug and reboot with nature. Located in the Wallowas, the camp serves combat-wounded veterans by providing adventures such as hunting, fishing, riding ATVs, horse packs and equine therapy.
