Ty Gassin has served his country and continues to do so, but he doesn’t think he’s done enough for his fellow veterans.

Gassin hopes to start rectifying that soon.

He is planning the inaugural Run For Veterans event for Saturday, Nov. 10 — the day before Veterans Day — in Baker City.

Gassin, 24, grew up in Baker City and graduated from Baker High School in 2013. He enlisted in the U.S. Army before he earned his diploma, and he served in the Army for 3 1/2 years, including a nine-month deployment to Kuwait in 2015.

He started a business, All American Metal Art, in Ontario in May of this year, and not long after joined the Army Reserves.

Gassin said he decided to sponsor an event that would focus attention on military veterans.

“I felt like I had to give more, and I wanted to do something I was very passionate about,” Gassin said. “I feel like I have a very strong connection with everyone in the services.”
