Last week on Regional Radio News, we told you about a fundraiser for the group Hooah Deer Hunt for Heroes and Tuesday afternoon, the Clinton Rotary Club heard from leaders of the group.
Brian Miller (left with Jeff Gaither, right) with the group explains they seek to help veterans that return from deployment with injuries, both seen and unseen, find a network of support through events like hunting and fishing.
Miller says when veterans return home with things like PTSD or IBD, those are the things people don't see that veterans need help with and their organization wants to do something to reduce the 22 daily suicides among veterans.
Hooah Deer Hunt for Heroes is based out of Stanford, Illinois. To get more information, visit hooahdeerhuntforheroes.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also find them on Facebook.
