GRAND FORKS, N.D.—One company said thank you this Veterans Day, by offering free floats.

And not the kind you drink.

Saturday, Waves Float Center in East Grand Forks gave away free float sessions to veterans looking to unwind.

Waves has a number of sound-proof float tanks filled with water and epsom salt where people can float in solitude.

Experts say the salt water has a number of health benefits and can reduce stress and anxiety.

It is also extremely effective in helping veterans dealing with PTSD.

"They have loved it. A couple people just left and they both just loved it and one booked another float so it's good that it's working for them," said Kasandra Gregoire, owner.

Eleven different veterans dropped by Saturday to take advantage of the free services.
