In the first nine months of this year, Ken Hershberger volunteered 422 hours to drive more than 1,200 veterans a total of 15,733 miles to their doctor appointments.
Three days a week, the 81-year-old wakes up before sunrise, arrives at the Roseburg Veterans Affairs Medical Center by 4:30 a.m. and loads his van with eight to 10 veterans.
