I am volunteering with a non-profit organization called the Fregoso Foundation to set up a duck or goose hunt for some of our wounded warriors from the gulf.
I have been a part of some of these previous trips and they are absolutely incredible to see the smiles of these men and women that have given so much for our freedom. Max Fregoso started this foundation over a year ago as a way to get these hero’s out in the field and their minds off of the past. The foundation also works with The Wounded Warrior project to get the vets involved in some of these trips. Please check out the foundation at this link, http://www.fregosofoundation.org/
What we are looking for is either a club or guide to donate a hunt for 4 wounded vets and 2 reps from the Foundation, I would be one rep and Max Fregoso would be the other. So this would be 6 total people, 2 four man tanks would work or a field setup. These men and women can get around pretty good, but there may be some help needed to get them out to the blind or field. This trip is tax deductible and will provide the donator a smile for a long time to come. The Foundation will take care of all transportation, lodging etc., we need the hunt to be provided, and it is covered under the Foundation for liability.
Also if any of you chat members would like to recommend a warrior that would benefit from such a trip that would be great and you can let me know. Some wounds are obvious like a missing limb; others are not quite so obvious such as ptsd.
I have provided articles for past trips to WON and the Fish Sniffer and would send one in on this trip also. My son Brett Miller will also be one of the 4 hunters and you can see his story from a CNN interview at this link. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f31YwsDpdmQ
Maybe you know someone that may be interested in donating and could pass this on to them. Thanks for reading this and I hope you check out the links, God Bless,
