Details: WHHC sent Hero Bernie Altman to Mayport, PA to hunt at the Kelley farm. Bernie arrived Sunday morning where he was greeted by Jeff, Jack, and Codi. After the meet and greet everyone settled in and had some great conversations, shared tons of laughs, and great food. On day 2 almost as soon as our group was in the blind the turkeys started gobbling. Not long after a beautiful tom came strutting into the decoy, perfectly aligned for Bernie to harvest. Bernie was so thrilled to be able to harvest such a beautiful bird. That night Bernie put on a magic show for everyone. This kind of adventure really is the definition of "healing on the hunt". The camaraderie that is often lost once Heroes are out of the service is something that truly brings everyone together. The lifelong friendships that are made make trips like this special for the Heroes.
A huge thank you to Jeff Kelley for opening up his farm to take our Hero out!
Our Wounded Heroes take home memories and friendships that will last a lifetime!
