Patriotic mustang stops in Council Bluffs, raises money for Wounded Warriors

By Marjorie Sturgeon. CREATED Jul 17, 2014

COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (KMTV) - A charity is going the extra mile to show support for the nation's veterans.

The High Five Tour made a stop at Mcmullen Ford in Council Bluffs Thursday.

It's a part of a mission called Wounded Warriors Family Support.

As the red, white and blue mustang travels across the country, people will be allowed to write well wishes to vets and make a donation.

Organizers say the support has been overwhelming.

“The importance is there's still a need. There's a lot of organizations doing a lot of great things, but there's still a need, so we're out there doing what we can to help satisfy that need,” said driver Ken Foley.

The tour is now headed west to Cheyenne.

Money raised on the tour will go to build smart homes to two wounded veterans.
