POLSON - Depression can set in for wounded veterans as they return home, but one non-profit hopes to change that by getting veterans back to work.
"Some people that are out there, that get wounded, will get enough money that they won't have to work," said Tomy Parker, a wounded Marine from Ronan.
"But who really wants to sit around and do nothing? Everybody enjoys to work, so they're trying to help them to go back and work again. To make them feel like a normal American," he added.
The Phoenix Patriot Foundation is hosting the first ever Seeley Lake New Year's Grizzly Bear Plunge, which will happen January 12 at Seeley Lake.
The jump costs $30, with the money raised going toward the non-profit to help assist veterans into the civilian world after their service. More information is available on the Phoenix Foundation's website.
