PORT ANGELES — Voices for Veterans, a federal 501(c) nonprofit group, is holding a silent auction using an authentic hot-weather Army combat boot, size 15, to raise money for needy military veterans.

The boot has a glass jar in it and can be used as a flower vase.

Boots and bid sheets are at four Port Angeles locations — Jim's Pharmacy, 424 E. Second St.; Peninsula Daily News, 305 W. First St.; and at both Safeway supermarkets.

Starting bid is $25, and increases should be $5 or more.

Donations are tax-deductible.

The “Boot on the Ground” silent auction will run through midnight on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. Winners will be contacted by telephone.

Voices for Veterans assists hundreds of North Olympic Peninsula veterans, many needy or homeless, every year and sponsors several “veterans stand downs” around the Peninsula to provide free services ranging from clothing and bedding to haircuts and employment aid.

For more information, contact Tony Cook at Voices for Veterans, 360-928-9477 or

“I hope this is a highly successful fundraiser because the veterans we help deserve it,” said Cook, an Army vet who served in Vietnam in 1966-67.
