Terre Haute, Ind. (WTHI) - The motto is "no one gets left behind" for combat soldiers.
That's why a local group is making sure veterans in the Wabash Valley are taking care of their own.
The Faithful Veteran Guide Detachment of United Methodist Temple held a food drive.
The event invited members of the community to donate canned goods to help feed homeless veterans in the Wabash Valley.
Local veterans took part in the event to lift up their own in need.
"The key thing is that all combat veterans live by is 'Leave no one behind' and this is another way for us to help the Wabash Valley not leave anyone behind," said Elias Donker, founder of the Faithful Veteran Guide Detachment.
The organization also offers a variety of services to veterans, including support groups.
They want to invite more veterans to get involved in their programs.
