If you are a veteran of United States military service, hopefully you’ve been extended the hand of gratitude — whether applause at the airport upon your return or just a handshake on the street.
Bob Paschal, a sportsman and a veteran from Roberta, and his fellow members of the Crawford County Lion’s Club, want to do far more to thank the men and women of our armed forces who gave tremendous sacrifices for our country. They are organizing special deer hunts for 12 disabled American veterans. Joining the Crawford County Lion’s Club to put on the event are the NWTF and Georgia WRD.
The full-day hunts will take place on Saturday, Dec. 1. Hunters will be allowed to take antlerless deer.
Veterans drawn for the hunt will be provided lodging on Friday night, Nov. 30 at a nearby Ramada Inn. Also, supper will be served that evening, and organizers are expecting other veterans and members of the community to attend.
Participants will be served breakfast before heading to their hunting locations the next morning, and lunch will be served during a midday break from the deer woods.
Please pass the word about this hunt to any disabled veterans or their family members.
