Lewis County was host to another event for the Wounded Warriors in Action Foundation – a program for Purple Heart heroes who have a love for the outdoors.
This is the third year Dennis Reynolds and Shelley Cohen have hosted hunting events focusing on small groups that allow for peer-to-peer interaction for Wounded Warriors with similar experiences.
Critical to the healing process, whether it is traumatic brain injury, permanent limb disability or post-traumatic stress disorder, these events bolster self-confidence while strengthening a bond with nature and others.

Morrow’s Foodtown generously donated groceries while Joel Crofton, Joyce Savage, Lynn Tiller, and Jason Hay all volunteered their time. Donations were also received from Bradley, Arant, Boult, Cummings Law Firm and the National Rifle Association to help support the cost of hunting licenses. Bear Ridge Sporting Goods donated use of their 3D archery course and a barbeque lunch for the heroes.

Our new game warden, Clint Newton stopped by with plenty of bottled water and Sun Drop products and spent time with the soldiers talking about hunting in Tennessee.

Their third event for this year will take place in December as a rifle hunt and anyone interested in donating or volunteering can contact Dennis or Shelley at 931-722-7218. You can donate directly through www.gofundme/TNWWIAF, and more details are available at www.wwiaf.org.
