MCFARLAND (WKOW) -- There are many ways our nation honors its veterans. This week on Memorial Day we saw parades and flag ceremonies.  Soon we'll see a fishing tribute as well.

The "Take a Vet Fishing" event kicks of for a second year on Sunday, June 9th in McFarland.

Rob Blanchar and Jay Garstecki joined Wake Up Wisconsin to explain what the outing is all about.  They say the four-hour excursion will get Wisconsin veterans out on the water, but also serve as a tribute, with a special flag ceremony back on dry land.

The event had about 27 veterans participating last year, it has now swelled to include many more.
