BRANSON, Mo. -- After one year, an organization that assists veterans in Branson is expanding.

The Branson chapter of the Disabled American Veterans provides free rides to veterans administration hospitals.

The group opened last year in response to Branson's growing veterans population.

Since then, the volunteers have added two more vans to their fleet.

Every month they take more than 40 veterans to doctors appointments in the Branson area, as far away as Fayettville,  Arkansas.

"It's a good group of guys that are trying to pay back veterans today that need assistance and help, through volunteer service, through getting them through crisis, helping them when they need help, and doing what we can do," says Darryl Ostrom, a DAV member.

The Branson DAV chapter now has more than 100 members.
The group also offers clinical services as well as support and counseling.
