Annual Veteran Turkey Hunt May 2016
This year’s annual turkey hunt consisted of 16 Veterans. Every Veteran was guided by a volunteer who took them hunting during the day. The evenings consisted of reconvening for great food, and forming new friendships and bonds. Some reunions occurred from soldiers who hadn’t seen each other for years. These folks were able to spend time, stress free, enjoying the warm country atmosphere while relaxing by the serenity of the ponds, fishing, sitting by the fire, or watching the deer graze at no cost to them. Thanks to all the volunteers and sponsors for making this possible. A huge thanks especially goes out to Rushville Elks 1307, RMEF Lincoln Hills, NWTF Ohio River Drummers, Beef O’ Brady’s, Austin Masonry, SCI – Birmingham, Gun World, Fishers of Men, Carver Logging, and Ellis Construction. Without these organizations this event would not be possible.
From founder Rodney Bruce: “I can tell you it takes a special person to sacrifice as they do strictly because it’s their choice….and I, for one, am their biggest fan and couldn’t appreciate them more.”
Well said, Mr. Bruce. It’s Hero Reward’s honor to give back to those who sacrifice themselves defending our great country.
