WILLISTON, N.D. - Each year, members of the Disabled American Veterans in North Dakota meet for their annual convention in a different city. For the first time in 10 years, they'll be in Williston.
Starting Friday, the three-day event draws injured and ill veterans of World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf War, Iraq, Afghanistan, and other military conflicts from across the state. Williston chapter Treasurer Ed Ennis says the DAV has about 1,000 members in North Dakota and about 200 here in Williston.
The convention is for members of DAV, but Ennis says the DAV Auxiliary is hosting a fundraiser auction benefit Friday night at 7:30 p.m. at the Grand Williston Hotel, which is open to the public.
