DES MOINES — Some local veterans took advantage of great weather this weekend to go kayak fishing and crabbing at Salt Water State Park in Des Moines.

The event was organized by a non-profit organization called Heroes on the Water which has chapters all across the country.

Many of the people who participated were wounded while serving our country.

The goal of the outdoor adventure is to help veterans leave all their stress behind.
