Several Valley veterans received special gifts Saturday as a thanks for their service.

The Central Valley Woodcarvers and Sequoia Woodturners presented 50 veterans at the Fresno VA hospital with handmade carved eagle head canes Saturday.

Members of the organizations said it takes about eight hours to make each cane. This is the seventh year the two groups have made the canes, and they have given them to more than 250 veterans.
