Some 34 injured veterans and 20 host boat captains made a day of fishing on Banks Lake Sunday, the first of what organizers said they hope is an annual event.

The Fallen Outdoors organization takes veterans on outdoor excursions and says its mission is to "film and show real-life American soldiers balancing duty for their country and passion for the outdoors."

Eastern Washington Team Leader David Atteberry said the event had been planned for March 10 but was postponed because the lake was frozen.

He expects a turnout of 50-60 at Coulee Playland for the event next year.
