On July 27 2013, Deery Brothers of Ames and the Iowa Jeep Club teamed up with the Story County Freedom Flight committee to help raise monies for local veterans. It was a great event that included vintage military vehicles, customized jeeps, and a free-will donation BBQ. Deery Brothers of Ames graciously donated $1,000 and the Iowa Jeep Club $250. Together with the BBQ the Story County Freedom Flight was able to collect over $3,200!
