130 Local Veterans Spend Day Fishing at Fish on for Freedom Event

In Ludington, 130 local veterans were casting lines Friday.

It’s a much deserved thank you called Fish on for Freedom.

It started bright and early around 5 a.m. at Ludington’s Harbor View Marina.

Nearly 30 boats and their captains volunteered their time to take the vets out.

There was also a welcome home procession led by the U.S. Coast Guard.
