|This is a volunteer organization that has developed a reliable service mechanism to transport veterans in Ontonagon County to the Iron Mountain Veterans Affairs hospital. In coordination with its own services, the Ontonagon County Veterans Association (OCVA) operates vans for Disabled American Veterans in Ontonagon County.
Veterans needing rides can leave a voicemail for the organization 24 hours a day, after which arrangements will be made with the 22 to 24 drivers, most of whom are retirees. The Department of Veterans Affairs reimburses OCVA for half of vehicle expenses, and OCVA covers the other half. There is no charge to riders. Service can be provided every weekday if necessary, but Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are the usual service days.
