Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) – Dozens of San Diego veterans returned from Standing Rock with a new sense of pride and honor.

"A sense of pride and honor, reliving the experience of that warrior pride," said U.S. Navy Veteran Ivan Sam. “Having a sense of purpose having a sense of belonging.”

Two dozen veterans with Veterans Support for Standing Rock left Friday, December 02, and returned a week later. They traveled 1,500 miles to Cannonball, North Dakota to stand with thousands against the Dakota Access Pipeline.

A GoFundMe account has been set up to help raise money for essentials for veterans to bring to Standing Rock.
