Veterans raise funds for wounded warriors

 LAWTON,Okla._It was all about food, music and fun....and it was for a good cause. The Veterans of Foreign Wars partnered with others to host Saturday's Wounded Warriors Fundraiser.

Their goal was to raise $3,000 in order to support wounded soldiers and their families in their transition back to everyday life.

Veterans attending the event said it's the least they could do to support others serving behind them.

 "We want to make sure that those transitioning out are taken care of as well as their families, and this is just a small token of what we can do to show our appreciation for them," Don Fenter said.

All proceeds from the event will benefit local soldiers who are in the Wounded Transitioning Unit.
